Chorizo and Prawn Quick Rice Salad


  • 24 (about 420g) peeled green prawns
  • 2 (about 250g) chorizo, sliced
  • 11 ⁄2 tbs Nando’s Hot Peri-Peri Sauce
  • 2 corncobs
  • 200g green beans, trimmed
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 1 ⁄ 2 cup fresh continental parsley leaves
  • 250g pkt microwave brown rice and quinoa, warmed
  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil


  1. To make the quick rice salad, preheat a barbecue plate or chargrill pan on medium-high. Spray the corn, beans and lemon with olive oil then place on barbecue. Cook the corn, turning occasionally, for 7 minutes or until just charred and tender. Cook the beans, tossing occasionally, for 2-3 minutes or until just tender. Cook lemon, cut-side down, for 2-3 minutes or until charred and tender. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Meanwhile, coat prawns and chorizo with the peri-peri sauce and spray with olive oil.
  3. Cook the chorizo and prawns, turning, for 4 minutes or until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Squeeze over 1 lemon half. Set aside.
  4. Use a sharp knife to cut down the length of corn close to core to remove kernels. Place in a large bowl with beans, parsley and rice mixture. Squeeze over remaining lemon half. Add oil, season and toss to combine. Divide the rice salad and chorizo mix among serving bowls.
