Sweet and spicy prawns (shrimp)

Ok, since I forgot to do a RecipeFriday, (oopsy!) I thought I give this little recipe a go.


Around 20 King Prawns, (raw)
1 tbsp tomato purée,
1/2 tbsp honey,
1/2 tbsp brown sugar,
1 tsp hot chilli powder,
1 tsp paprika,
1 tsp garlic powder,
1 tbsp lemon juice,
1/2 tbsp lime juice,
1 tsp mustard, (english)
2 tbsp chunky chopped chorizo,
1 tbsp chopped dried (or normal) parsley,
1/2 tsp salt,
1/2 - 1 tsp pepper,
1 tsp garlic and basil pesto, (optional)
2 tbsp diced red pepper,
1 tsp finely chopped/minced chilli.

Fry the prawns until the outside begins to appear white/pink.
In a small bowl mix together the tomato purée, pesto,  mustard, lemon and lime juice, honey and brown sugar.
Then add around 1/3 cup water. Mix together and add to the prawns. Then mix in the chilli, garlic and paprika powder, parsley, and salt and pepper seasoning. Add peppers.
Simmer for 5 minutes until the prawns are firm and cooked all through. Throw in the chorizo at the last minute.

Recommend serving with brown rice and your favourite veggies :)

Enjoy :D x
