Last week I had dinner with some friends in a great Asian restaurant. The food was tasty and the service, very nice indeed. But best of all, this restaurant has a buffet. Ah, the paradise of women on a diet! Yes, because once you go out with your friends you’re not going to count calories or carbohydrates…
One of the most typical dishes of Asian cuisine is rice, and its most famous version is fried rice. Today’s recipe is a variation of this classic with a certain Spanish twist. Adding chorizo makes everything tastier and this dish is no exception.
Ingredients300 g basmati rice 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 small chorizos sliced 1 onion, chopped 1 clove garlic, minced ½ teaspoon of turmeric 200 g of frozen cooked prawns (shrimp) 100 g of frozen peas 150 ml of boiling water
Wash rice until water runs clear, put it in a pot and cover with cold water (a finger) and bring it to a boil. Season, cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes, until the rice absorbs the liquid. Remove from the heat and let stand another 10 minutes. Finally separate the grains with a fork.
Heat the oil in a skillet, sauté the chorizos, onion and garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes until tender. Now add the turmeric, rice, shrimp, peas and boiling water. Cook until the water had evaporated. Serve with lemon wedges.
