If you’re looking for a quick and easy dinner that’s bursting with flavour, this pasta with prawn and chorizo is a fantastic choice. Not only is it a crowd-pleaser, but it comes together in under 20 minutes with just a few ingredients.

The chorizo really is the star of the show here, and when cooked low and slow, releases a flavourful oil that acts as the perfect base for a pasta sauce. We usually serve this pasta dish on its own, but it also works well when served alongside crusty sourdough bread or a simple salad.

Read on for the step-by-step instructions…


Method

Follow these steps to make our Prawn & Chorizo Pasta Recipe

1. Boil Your Pasta

Start by boiling your linguini in heavily salted water in a pan. Cook your pasta according to the package instructions.

2. Cook Your Chorizo

Whilst your pasta is cooking, get started on the rest of the ingredients. Start by adding a good glug of quality olive oil to a pan on medium, before adding in your chorizo and chilli flakes. Cook until slightly crisp and the oil has been released. 

Top tip: if you’d like to at this stage, you can also add a finely chopped shallot and a few cloves of crushed garlic to the pan and cook until softened.

3. Add The Prawns

If your jumbo prawns are already cooked, simply add them to the pan and cook until warmed through. If your prawns are raw, cook until they are cooked all of the way through.

4. Assemble Your Pasta

Once your chorizo and prawns are cooked through, add your linguini to the pan along with a dash of pasta water. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add in a squeeze of lemon juice. Add in your rocket. Mix everything together until the pasta is coated with the saucy chorizo oil and the rocket leaves are slightly wilted.

5. Serve and Enjoy

Ladle your pasta into large pasta bowls and serve immediately with a wedge of lemon, a fresh crack of black pepper, and a sprinkling of grated parmesan cheese.

Can You Freeze Chorizo Pasta?

While it’s best enjoyed fresh, you can freeze chorizo pasta. However, the texture of the pasta and the prawns may change slightly upon thawing. To freeze, store it in an airtight container and consume it within three months for the best results.

Can I Make Prawn & Chorizo Pasta in Advance?

This dish is quick to assemble, so it is perfect for a dinner party, however, you can cook some elements in advance, like the prawns and chorizo. Just ensure that you keep the chorizo oil in the pan as this forms an essential part of this dish.

Can You Reheat Chorizo Pasta?

Yes, you can reheat chorizo pasta. To maintain its flavour and texture, gently reheat it on the stove or in the microwave. Adding a splash of water or olive oil while reheating can help prevent the pasta from drying out. Be careful not to heat the pasta dish for any longer than needed as this can make the prawns chewy. 

What Can I Use Instead Of Prawns?

If you’re looking for alternatives to prawns, consider using shrimp, scallops, or even chicken for a protein-packed twist on this dish. Vegetarians can try substituting prawns with grilled mushrooms or tofu and substituting the chorizo with vegetarian sausages and a dash of smoked paprika for a meatless version.

What Wine Pairs Best With Prawn & Chorizo Pasta?

A glass of wine can elevate your dining experience. For this dish, a crisp white wine like a Sauvignon Blanc or a light red like Pinot Noir complements the flavours beautifully. Experiment with wine pairings to discover your favourite combination.
