Get Prepped

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Boil a full kettle.

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Cut into 2cm pieces.

Chorizo and Rice Time

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, wide-bottomed ovenproof pan on medium heat. TIP: If you don't have an ovenproof pan, use a normal pan and transfer to an ovenproof dish before baking.

Once hot, add the chorizo and fry, stirring frequently, until it starts to brown, 2-3 mins.

Stir the garlic, smoked paprika and risotto rice into the chorizo. Cook until the edges of the rice are translucent, 1-2 mins.

Bake your Paella

Stir the boiled water for the rice (see pantry for amount) and chicken stock paste into the rice. Bring back to the boil, then pop a lid on the pan (or cover with foil). 

Bake on the middle shelf of your oven until the rice is cooked and the water has been absorbed, 25-30 mins.

Meanwhile, zest and halve the lemon (see ingredients for amount). Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).

Toss the lemon zest and half the parsley together in a small bowl. Set aside.

Cook the Prawns

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on high heat. Drain the prawns.

Once hot, add the pepper and fry until just soft, 3-4 mins. Continue to stir while it cooks.

Turn the heat down to medium-high, then add the prawns. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 mins.

Once cooked, remove from the heat and add a squeeze of lemon juice. Cover to keep warm. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns. They're cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.

Combine and Stir

When your paella is cooked, remove it from the oven and stir through the prawns, pepper, sun-dried tomato paste and remaining parsley.

Season to taste with salt, pepper, or a squeeze of lemon if needed. TIP: Add a splash of water to loosen the paella if needed.

Garnish and Serve

Share your ultimate king prawn and chorizo paella between your bowls. 

Finish with a sprinkle of the parsley and lemon zest mixture over the top.
