Recipe. Spicy, creamy prawns with rice

Hopefully you’ve read my previous post about rice.

This recipe served one person. I was all alone with a bottle of this. A remarkably good bottle of rose from Aldi. It cost £5.99.

food and drinkIt needed something fishy and luxurious and this is what I cooked.

Ingredients

A knob of butter or a tbsp of oil – not olive as it’s a bit strong in flavour

Prawns, (Aldi prawns are particularly tast and cheap. I used about a quarter of a defrosted bag)

Half a red chilli about 2 inches long, diced small

A quarter of a small onion diced

4 quartered cherry tomatoes

3 mushrooms sliced

4 tablespoons of half fat creme fraiche (you could use cream if you felt decadent)

1 desert spoon of fish sauce

200g cooked rice

Directions

Fry the onion and chilli gently in the butter/oil until the onion is soft, then add the mushrooms and continue cooking for a couple of minutes.

Throw in the tomatoes and cook until soft, then add the prawns, cream and fish sauce and cook until warmed through.

Throw in the rice and turn it through the mixture then turn the whole thing into a pasta bowl or onto a plate.

Good with rocket or peas.
