Spanish Prawns, Scallops and Chorizo with Patatas Bravas and Greens

One foodie tip of mine is, if you love food, go to Spain. Just the South’s native way of eating – tapas – means you get to taste so many different flavours in one night. Spanish food is rich and hearty and once you have it you will crave it. Patatas bravas is a very common dish, consisting of fried or baked cubes of potato with a spicy tomato sauce and aioli. A dish which is now a staple for me when choosing tapas. I incorporated it into this dish as it compliments the smokey prawns and scallops perfectly and I love it. For this recipe I used 1/2 a pack of prawns and 1/2 a pack of scallops from Ocado – I used the other half in the next recipe I’ll post.
