  1. Step 1

    Combine the prawns, paprika and half the oil in a large bowl. Toss to coat. Heat a large deep frying pan over medium heat. Add the prawn mixture and cook for 3 mins each side or until prawns curl and change colour. Transfer to a heatproof bowl.
  2. Step 2

    Heat the remaining oil in the pan. Add the chorizo, garlic and capsicum and cook for 3 mins or until the chorizo is golden. Add the rice and stir to combine. Stir in the stock and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 15 mins or until the rice is almost tender.
  3. Step 3

    Top the rice mixture with the prawn mixture and peas. Cook, uncovered, for 5 mins or until the rice is tender, the peas are heated through and the liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle with coriander and serve with lime cheeks.
