Mushrooms stuffed with Prawns and Chorizo

Seeing as Valentines Day fell on a Tuesday this year and Mr B and I both had to work I wanted to do something really special in the evening....movies? drinks? a special dinner followed by a decadent dessert and a swanky gift? You betcha baby!

After much pondering and many mind changes I decided to cook Mushrooms stuffed with Prawns and Chorizo with Cheese Crisps and a Creamy Garlic Potato Bake - all of Mr B's favourite things!

It looks impressive, tastes delicious and is actually pretty easy!

All you need is:

1/2 cup grated cheese
4 large mushrooms
2 tspns crushed garlic
14 prawns peeled and de-veined
50g thinly sliced chorizo
2 tbspns balsamic vinegar
4 tbspns thickened cream

Now the first step is to remove the stems from your mushrooms and place them on an oven tray. Cook them at 150C for around 20 mins.

Heat a fry pan over medium heat and spray with a little bit of oil. Place the cheese into the pan in small piles, you can do 2 bigger ones or 4 smaller ones, just make sure they are evenly placed.

Allow the cheese to cook and bubble away for a few minutes. Once it looks nice and golden try and flip it over. Once both sides are nice and golden, remove from the pan and place on some absorbent paper.

Place the chorizo in the pan and cook for 3-4 mins. While it's cooking take 10 of the prawns and chop them up. Leave 4 whole for decoration later.

Add the chopped prawns to the pan with the garlic and cook for 2-3 mins or until the prawns turn a pale pink colour. Remove from the pan. Your mushrooms should be out of the oven by now.

Place the whole prawns in the pan with the balsamic and cream. While they are cooking fill the mushroom cups with the prawn and chorizo mixture. Once the whole prawns are cooked, pour the sauce over the mushroom cups, top with a cheese crisp and then with the whole prawns.

And most important enjoy!!

I hope you all had a lovely Valentines Day, however you chose to celebrate it
