    Prawn Orecchiette with Roasted-Shell Olive Oil

    Check out this easy orecchiette recipe with large juicy prawns and punchy chilli. Impress your friends with this simple yet flavour packed pasta recipe this weekend.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep and cook time: 40 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 2


        •    6 tbsps olive oil
        •    150g orecchiette
        •    2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
        •    dried chilli flakes a good pinch
        •    flat-leaf parsley a handful, chopped
        •    12 whole shell-on large raw prawns


    1. Twist the heads off the prawns and peel the shells from the bodies (but don’t discard them), leaving the tails on. Cut down the back of the prawns and remove the black vein inside. Give the prawns a rinse then pat dry on kitchen paper.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and gently fry the heads and shells for 5 minutes. Scoop out the heads and shells leaving behind as much oil as possible.
    3. Cook the orecchiette in salted boiling water following pack instructions. Drain, keeping a cup of the cooking water.
    4. Add the garlic and chilli to the oil. Fry gently so the garlic doesn’t brown. Add the butterflied prawns and a pinch of salt, and cook until just pink. Add the orecchiette to the pan with enough reserved pasta water to make it saucy, and toss. Add parsley and toss again before serving.

    Chicken Fajitas with Cheat's Mole Sauce

    This chicken recipe is spicy, smoky, sizzling and packed with flavour.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep and cook time: 25 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4


        •    1 lime
        •    olive oil
        •    1 red pepper
        •    1 yellow pepper
        •    1 large red onion
        •    1/2 tsp ground cumin
        •    4 tbsps natural yoghurt
        •    1/2 tsp mild chilli powder
        •    4 wholemeal flour tortillas
        •    4 sprigs of fresh coriander
        •    1/2 tsp sweet smoked paprika
        •    4 x 120g skinless free-range chicken breasts

    Chest's Mole Sauce:

        •    1 tsp ground cumin
        •    2 tbsps chipotle paste
        •    2 medium ripe tomatoes
        •    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
        •    1 pinch of mild chilli powder
        •    15g quality dark chocolate (70%)


    1. Place 1 tablespoon of oil into a bowl with the spices and half the lime juice.

    2. Peel and finely slice the onion, then trim and deseed the peppers. Slice the peppers and the chicken breasts into 1cm strips.

    3. Add the onion, pepper and chicken to the bowl of spices with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper and toss to coat. Leave to marinate while you make the mole sauce.

    4. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of oil into a pan over a medium heat. Finely chop the tomatoes and add to the pan, followed by the chipotle paste and spices. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then pour in 200ml of hot water. Cook for a further 10 minutes, or until thickened, mashing the tomatoes to make a smoother sauce.

    5. Remove from the heat and finely grate in the chocolate, stir until melted, then set aside for later. Wrap the tortillas in tin foil and put to one side.

    6. Pour 1 tablespoon of oil into a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the chicken and veg and fry for 6 minutes, or until cooked through, turning halfway. You may need to do this in batches.

    7. Meanwhile, pop the parcel of tortillas into a low oven for 5 minutes to warm through. Cut the remaining lime half into wedges, pick and finely chop the coriander leaves, and put the yoghurt into a little bowl.

    8. Remove the tortillas from the oven, and build the fajitas: take a wrap, spoon over some mole sauce and top with chicken and veg. Spoon over some yoghurt, scatter over a few coriander leaves and squeeze over a little lime juice. Nice served with a dollop of fresh guacamole.
