Chorizo and Prawn mini skewers

These are tasty little appetizers that will go down a treat at any dinner party, holiday get together or even if you just fancy making something special. I love starters my dad always orders a few different ones instead of a main meal and I think he is onto something because they are usually the most delicious part of your meal and that way you have lots of variety.

This is a Gordon Ramsay recipe and I just love his food, I think he is an amazing chef and much lovelier than he comes across in North America. You should check out his show ‘Gordon Behind Bars’ It is fantastic, he spends 6 months in a UK prison teaching inmates how to pay their way by setting up a business on the inside to sell food on the outside ‘The Badboy Bakery’ It is a great concept and very moving to see men that haven’t had a great start in life, learn a skill and become confident and proud of themselves. I will be looking for the lemon treacle slice when I go home.

I have made these a few times now and they always turn out perfect, you simply fry the sliced chorizo and prawns together untill cooked then layer them on a toothpick with a shred of basil and baked cherry tomato’s and garlic! If you are a really tight on time I would use fresh tomato’s and a drizzle of df pesto!


  • 16 prawns
  • 16 slices of chorizo
  • 8 cherry tomatoes sliced in half
  • 16 basil leaves tore in half
  • 2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • olive oil


Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C, place the sliced cherry tomatoes on a baking sheet topped with a thin slice of garlic and a drizzle of olive oil and a touch of salt. Bake for 30 minutes.

When the tomatoes are about ten mins from being done, add some oil to a pan and fry the chorizo slices and prawns over a medium heat until cooked, keep warm until the tomatoes are finished. Then slide onto your tooth pick, a prawn, piece of basil, slice of chorizo, another piece of basil and top with a grilled tomato slice and garlic. Serve immediately and enjoy!
