Let this Chorizo and Prawns dish transport you to its home, the coastal town of Sorrento in Italy. In Sorrento, fisher people bring fresh prawns to farmers’ markets and cook their catch of the day alongside fresh or cured meat from meat producers. A simple, but tasty dish features some of Selwyn’s local producers. Tiger prawns and Italian chorizo, flavoured by caramelised onions from Lincoln’s Ropers & Son, butter, and prosecco and confit garlic. Garnished with pesto made from Rolleston’s Wyenova Organic Farm's basil and toasted coconut flakes.
