We posted this picture of our delicious meal on our Facebook recently and some of our followers expressed that they would love the recipe. So here it is!
This is one of those recipes you may need a bit of time to prepare, but oh my goodness, is it worth it!
We were inspired by Jamie Oliver's recipe but added our own little tweaks according to our liking as well as to save time. We love vegetables and tomatoes in particular so added a bit more, along with a little extra paprika to give that gorgeous vibrant finish.
Let us know what you think when you have tried this and any tweaks that you made of your own.
