|With linguine / Con linguine|
*Pasta al limón con chorizo y langostinos: en español más abajo* It's no secret that I love chorizo, you can even say that I am a bit chorizo obsessed. No, seriously, you can, I give you permission! I also love seafood and my Thermomix so it was only a matter of time before I published a recipe like this Thermomix Lemony Chorizo and Prawn Pasta.
For a gluten free version, this will work really well with quinoa.
By the way, if you still don't know what on earth a Thermomix is, this post
will tell you all about it. If you live in the UK and you already have a
Thermomix or are considering buying one, I run the fantastic Thermomix Owners UK Facebook group. Come join the Thermie chat and, while at it, find me on Instagram (I do go on about it a lot on there).
- 1 big garlic clove or 2 normal sized ones
- Half a big onion or one small one
- 1 small red chilli (optional, I used chilli olives so I didn't use it this time)
- A chorizo sausage (you can use spicy if not adding chilli, quartered lengthways and then cubed), you can add more chorizo if you are going to use 2 tomato tins
- Large handful of raw king prawns, more if using 2 tomato tins
- 1 x 400g tin of chopped tomatoes (2 if for more than 2 people), if you can get your hands on good fresh tomatoes, even better
- Juice of a lemon
- A few sliced olives
- Handful of fresh coriander
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Black pepper
- Linguine or spelt spaghetti (or whichever pasta takes your fancy, long pasta works really well), 150 g and two tins of tomatoes will serve 4 people
1. Put plenty of water to boil.
2. Add garlic, onion and chilli (if using) to bowl: 5 seconds, speed 5.
3. Add the chorizo and small drizzle of extra virgin olive oil: 100ºC, 5 minutes, speed 1.
4. Add prawns and lemon juice: Varoma, 3 minutes, REVERSE, soft speed (gentle stir, the spoon symbol).
5. Add chopped tomatoes (if they are very liquidy, place them in a sieve or the inner basket over a bowl first, if using two tins only sieve one tin) and a few twists of the black pepper mill: Varoma, 15 minutes, REVERSE, soft speed (spoon symbol).
6. Add the pasta to the boiling water so that it finishes cooking at the same time as the sauce.
7. Half way through add the coriander and half the olives (saving some for decoration if you want). When the sauce is ready, add the cooked pasta to the Thermie bowl and mix well with the spatula. It's ready to serve, enjoy!!
