In sauté pan, heat the oil. 

Once the oil is heated, salt and pepper both sides of the prawns and add them to the hot oil.

Sear each side of the prawns for 3 to 3 and a half minutes. They should be golden brown in color. 

Once both sides are seared, pull the prawns from the pan and set aside. 

Add the corn, chorizo, salt and pepper. It lets fat from chorizo render out. 

Once rendered, deglaze with Tequila and butter and let it reduce. 

Once all marry together, add the shrimp back to the pan and fresh cilantro. 

Cook for 30 seconds before plating.
