Salad of Prawns Chorizo Bacon Cherry Tomatoes and Green Beans with Roast Herby Potato Cubes


200g raw prawns
100g sliced chorizo, chopped
100g smoked bacon lardons
Small bowl cherry tomatoes
Shaved Fennel
200g fine beans, cooked in boiling water for 3 minutes then drained
2 large potatoes, cut into cubes and tossed in olive oil
2 tbsp chopped herbs, any will do, I used sage and marjoram

Sprinkle the herbs over the potato cubes and cook in a pre-heated oven at 180C / gas 4 until they are tender and golden brown, this should take around 30-35 minutes.

For the dressing

4 tbsp good quality olive oil
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tsp whole grain mustard

Stir the dressing ingredients together and set aside.

Heat a large saute pan and add the bacon lardons, cook for a couple of minutes, then put in the chorizo and prawns and stir fry for 2 minutes until the prawns are pink.

Add the cherry tomatoes and shaved fennel and cook for 1 minute.  Remove the pan from the heat.

Add the warm green beans and the dressing.  Sprinkle the hot potato cubes over the top and serve with crusty bread.
