Ingredients

  • 300ml fish or veg stock
  • 150g orzo
  • spray olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ red chilli, chopped
  • 200g raw peeled prawns

    Heat the stock in a pan until simmering. Tip in the orzo and cook for 6-8 minutes until just tender. Drain and leave to cool in the sieve while you cook the prawns.

    Toss the warm orzo with the cooked prawns, and fold through the avocado. Divide between plates, then top with the rocket leaves.
