One tray Cajun prawns

Simple meals don’t have to be boring  

I have been on a mission to make simple and tasty meals. I aim to create recipes that can be prepared and cooked quickly on a busy weeknight. We all struggle to make healthy and delicious meals while keeping on top of everything else in life. So this recipe is designed to be healthy, delicious and easy to make. You can cook this meal on a single tray in the oven. The preparation takes no more than 20 minutes and is portioned to feed four adults.  

Cajun inspiration 

Shrimp and prawns don’t just make me think about BBQ; they make me think about Cajun food. This recipe brings together the spice of the chorizo sausage with the fresh flavours of the pawns and sweetness of the corn. The one tray meal makes it ideal for a busy night or something fancy for the weekend.
