On the weekend half way through the afternoon when you’re feeling hungry, or as soon you come home from work and can’t wait until dinner to be ready, our favourite quick fix at the moment is chorizo, cooked in a pan on a medium heat with some peppers and onion and a splash of white wine for the last couple of minutes – this takes less than 10 minutes, or the time it takes the onions/peppers to cook. Served above with some bread to dip into the tasty juice.
My husband loves scallops, I usually make the tried and tested recipe of scallops with prosciutto and line dressing . Last weekend, Rich suggested making the scallops with chorizo.
So that’s what we did, I cooked the chorizo on a low heat to start so that the oil would be released, then turned it up and cooked the scallops with the chorizo for 2 minutes on each side.
I’ll be doing it again! These days I’m also thinking of putting chorizo with any white fish, chicken and chorizo salad, chorizo in a tomato pasta sauce…
