Chorizo Polenta

Today we are making the polenta accompaniment to the Korean inspired prawn and tilapia this takes no time at all, 7-10 minutes and you are done! Not a lot of work here, polenta or cornmeal is something I grew up eating a lot of. Much loved porridge with nutmeg and mace spice...mmmmm, perhaps I will make some later. 

Anyway, this dish is great for those of us sensitive to gluten it is a great alternative to grains or just for a bit of variety. If you have coeliac disease however, it's a good idea to check carefully that the cornmeal/polenta you are purchasing has been produced in an environment free of cross contamination with other grains not suitable for coeliacs. One note of warning, a little goes a long way so don't go nuts or worry if you think the amount in the recipe at the start looks very small. Trust me, it's enough!


Let's cook!
