Spicy chorizo-prawn appero

Here in France, this is one of our family’s favourite apperatif nibbles. I’ve adapted this a little from my mum’s ‘gambas pil pil’, but I’ve had no complaints! Great for drinks nibbles, or perhaps even as a starter. Enjoy 🙂



  • 200g cooked & drained prawns
  • 200g spicy chorizo, sliced into rounds
  • 1/4 bulb garlic, chunked
  • 1 white onion, roughly sliced
  • salt & pepper
  • fresh herbs to garnish (optional! parsley or chives would work well)

Serves 6-8

  1. Throw the chorizo and the onions together into a frying pan on high heat.
  2. Constantly stir, and ensure the chorizo slices get colour on both sides.
  3. Once the chorizo and onions have got a generous amount of colour (don’t be afraid of burning little bits, it adds more depth to the flavour!), throw in the garlic and the prawns.
  4. Turn off the heat, but keep stirring through – this will warm through the prawns/cook the garlic in the remaining heat. Season to taste.
  5. Serve warm, with a garnish of fresh herbs.

(Tip: put down some kitchen roll in a serving dish to soak up the excess oils)
