I have theeeeee thing to make the cold weather seem a tiny bit better. The idea for this recipe came from the whole shrimp and grits thing that you get in the American south.  Sadly, I never actually tried shrimp and grits when I was travelling around the south.

I mean, what’s the deal with grits for one thing? Are they the same as polenta? It’s all very confusing. What I do know is that this prawn & chorizo polenta bowl is a delicious autumn meal. You kick off with some chopped red onion frying until soft and then you need a load of garlic.

Then you chuck in your chorizo with the chilli flakes. This is where you get all the crazy, caramelised flavour going so let it cook slowly for a little while. Chuck in cherry tomatoes and let them break down with a squeeze of tomato puree before adding your prawns and letting them cook through. Serve the whole lot on top of cheesy polenta and be in comfort food HEAVEN.
