Lidl are currently doing an offer on Langoustine -
or whole Scottish scampi as they are labelled - at €9.99
We know them better as Dublin Bay prawns.

This dish is very easy to adapt for other combinations.
It really is a great, colourful dish at this time of year.

1 tbsp olive oil
2 rabbit saddles, boned and cut into pieces (or chicken)
Dublin bay prawns, shell and head on
Cup of frozen, tailed prawns (also available from lidl)
3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1 can chopped tomato's
2 Onions
Bell peppers
200g/7oz paella rice, you can also use risotto rice.
Tsp Paprika
Tsp Oregano
a pinch of saffron or turmeric
1 litre/1¾ pints rabbit stock, made with rabbit bones boiling
Salt & Pepper

Fry the rabbit, onion, garlic, herbs and spices.
Add the rice, making sure the grains are coated.
Transfer to a casserole dish.
Add the prawns, tomato's and peppers and mix gently.

Add the stock - bring it up to the top of the rice.
Cover and put in a pre-heated oven - 180 deg C for 30 minutes
- or until liquid absorbed.
Ideally, if you have a big enough frying pan you can leave
it cook on the hob if covered, but I don't so I had to
adapt the cooking method.

Serve hot, its great fun to eat - breaking open the Dublin bay prawns.

Keep the heads, don't discard them as they make the basis of a lovely bisque.
