The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Peri Peri Seasoning
Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into small pieces. Chop the broccoli into florets (little trees!). Chop the tomato into small pieces. Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all). Cut the lemon into wedges. Fill and boil your kettle with water, we will use it for the rice.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the, tomato and chopped pepper. Cook until softened slightly, 3-4 mins. Once softened, stir in the tomato purée and cook for 1 minute more. Pour the boiling water (see ingredients for amount) into the saucepan. Add the stock powder and stir to dissolve.
Bring back to the boil then stir the rice into the pan. Lower the heat to medium and cover the pan with a lid. Leave to cook for 5 mins then pop the broccoli florets on top of the rice. Quickly pop the lid back on and cook for 5 mins more. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside (still covered) for another 10 mins or until ready to serve. TIP: The rice and broccoli will finish cooking in its own steam.
Pop the peri peri seasoning into a mixing bowl (see ingredients for amount, it's hot, hot ,hot!). Add the prawns and toss to coat. TIP: Use less spice if you don't like heat!
When the rice is ready, heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the prawns to the pan. Fry for 2-3 mins each side then stir in a little squeeze of lemon juice and half the parsley. Remove from the heat. IMPORTANT: The prawns are cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle!
As soon as your prawns are cooked, gently mix the broccoli through the rice and season with salt and pepper if needed. Divide the rice between your plates serve the prawns on top. Sprinkle over a little of the remaining parsley and serve with a wedge of lemon to squeeze on top. Enjoy!
