Total time: 

Ingredients Ingredients

  • 5oz Coarse polenta/cornmeal
  • 5fl oz Milk
  • Half stick Butter
  • 2tsp Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste
  • 1 pint Water
  • ½tsp Salt
  • 1oz Parmesan
  • 1 Ear of sweetcorn (or use a small tin)
  • 3½oz Chorizo sausage
  • 6oz King prawns (raw)
  • 3 Scallions
  • Handful fresh coriander
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Lime
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions Instructions

  1. In a large pan, add the water along with the milk and salt. Bring to the boil.
  2. Gradually add the polenta and stir until it thickens.
  3. Turn heat down low and cook for 35-40 mins, stirring every 3-4 minutes. It will get thicker and smoother as it cooks. It's ready once the grainy texture has gone and it begins to come away from the side of the pan.
  4. Stir in the butter, Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste and parmesan.
  5. Slice chorizo into bitesized chunks and fry over medium high heat.
  6. Once cooked, reduce heat slightly and add sweetcorn and chopped scallions for about 3-4 minutes.
  7. Add prawns until pink all over. Remove from heat and stir through roughly chopped coriander (hold a little back for garnish).
  8. The creamy polenta will solidify slightly if left off the heat, so once ready to put the dish together, gently heat it back up and it should loosen up. Add a little water if necessary.
  9. Meanwhile, poach the eggs. These can be done in advance and kept in ice cold water until ready to use them.
  10. Stir in half of the chorizo/prawn/sweetcorn mix to the spicy polenta along with most of the chopped coriander.
  11. Pour this into a serving dish.
  12. Top with remaining chorizo/prawns/sweetcorn, poached eggs, a sprinkle of parmesan, fresh coriander, a little lug of olive oil, salt & pepper.
  13. Serve with wedges of fresh lime to squeeze over.
