Cooking Together Coastal Inspired Recipes

We Cooked:

  2. Main: Cod Fillet, White Wine and Basil Sauce, New Potato and Seasonal Veg Medley

king prawns with chorizo in cherry tomato sauce


  • serves 2:
  • a handful of king prawns (6-8)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 50g of chorizo, diced
  • a splash of red wine
  • 1/2 can of chopped tomatoes
  • a handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • a handful of chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp of toasted pine nuts
  • 1 bulb of mozzarella, ripped into chunks
  • cooking oil
  • seasoning
To serve: 2 tbsp of pesto, piadina bread


  1. Add a splash of oil to a frying pan and heat up on medium-high heat.
  2. Saute king prawns until they change colour on both sides, remove them from the pan and rest on the side- they don’t need to be super well done at this stage, we will be finishing them in the sauce soon.
  3. Add another splash of oil, followed up by the chorizo, cook it until it releases some oils, don’t make it too crispy.
  4. Start sautéing the onion and garlic until golden. Don’t worry about any caramelised prawn bits, that’s all extra flavour. 
  5. Next, deglaze the pan with the wine and reduce it down until thick, this will get rid of the alcohol while remaining the depth of flavour.
  6. Add both fresh and canned tomatoes, season and cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat
  7. Add prawns back to the sauce to warm up, and serve inside of piadina bread topped with mozzarella, pine nuts, herbs and pesto.,

piadina bread



  • serves 4
  • -500 g (3 3/4 cups) of all purpose flour
  • -220 ml (1 cup) of water at room temperature
  • -80 ml (about 1/3 cup) of extra virgin olive oil or 80 g (about 1/3 cup) of lard
  • -1 teaspoon of fine salt
  • -1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • -1/2tsp of fast action yeast
  • Method:
  1. First place the flour and yeast in a bowl with the baking soda and salt. Mix well. Then add the oil or, if you prefer, the softened lard. We used extra virgin olive oil.
  2. Now add the water at room temperature. Mix everything for a few minutes until you get a soft but compact dough. If the dough sticks to your fingers, add a sprinkling of flour again. Piadina dough must be soft but not sticky.
  3. Now add the water at room temperature. Mix everything for a few minutes until you get a soft but compact dough. If the dough sticks to your fingers, add a sprinkling of flour again. Piadina dough must be soft but not sticky.
  5. Cover the dough with cling film and let it rest at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Then divide the dough into 4 portions
  6. Work them a little with your hand on the work surface in order to have balls with a smooth surface and let them rest for another 10 minutes covered with a kitchen towel.
  7. Roll out each ball with the help of a rolling pin, forming a disc with a thickness of 4/5 mm (about 0,20 inch) and a diameter of about 20/25 cm (8/10 inch).
  8. Don’t worry if they don’t turn out perfectly round. Imperfection means “handmade” and no one will think you bought them! Now you have to cook them. But first an IMPORTANT TIP: while cooking a Piadina, keep the other raw Piadina covered with a cloth. This is to prevent the dough from drying out.
  9. So now cook the Piadina one at a time in a preheated non-stick pan. Turn the Piadina after a minute or when bubbles form. Repeat it twice, pricking it here and there with a fork.
  10. The piadina must cook for about 2 minutes per side (4 minutes in total). Piadina is ready when it has taken on a slightly golden colour and the characteristic small dark spots have appeared on the surface.
  11. Piadina is ready to be stuffed. Arrange them one on top of the other covered with a cloth that will help keep them warm. Bring them to the table stuffed as you like with what you prefer! Piadina is fantastic with everything, even on its own!
