  1. Place a large, flat, wide pan on a medium heat. Drizzle in the oil. Add the onions to the pan and cook for 5 minutes until they are starting to soften.

  2. Lower the heat, add the garlic, red chili and fresh tomatoes to the pan and continue cooking for 5 minutes.

  3. Add half of the chorizo to the pan (save the rest for later) and fry for 2 minutes, stirring. Tip the rice into the pan and stir well so that it is well coated with all of the juices in the pan. Season with a little salt and pepper.

  4. Add the stock and canned tomatoes, stir well and cover with a lid or a piece of tin foil. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, replacing the lid.

  5. Heat a separate frying pan and add the remaining chorizo to the pan. Fry for 2 minutes on each side to release some of the oil. Add the king prawns to the pan and cook until just pink and slightly golden. Switch off and set to one side.

  6. Trim the Tenderstem® broccoli and chop a few of the stalks into thin slices. Stir the rice, adding the Tenderstem® broccoli stalks. If the rice looks dry, add a small amount of water or stock. Carefully place the rest of the Tenderstem® broccoli on top of the rice, to allow it to steam gently. Replace the lid and cook for 5 minutes, just until the Tenderstem® broccoli turns a vibrant green colour.

  7. Just before serving, add the cooked chorizo and prawns to the pan. Check the seasoning. Add a few drops of Tabasco (if you like extra heat) and sprinkle over the coriander.
