Chorizo with red wine.
This is fast filling and tasty. Like all tapas, it is to be eaten with a good drink, like a ice cold beer and some bread. It is the sun on you face and warmth in your tummy that is so good.
For the chorizo in red wine
2 tbsp olive oil
1 banana shallot, sliced, or red onions
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
300g/1oz chorizo, cut diagonally into 2.5cm/1in chunks
2 fresh bay leaves
200ml/7fl oz red wine
This is so simple to do, get your self a frying pan. Add the oil and start to cook the shallots and garlic. Add the bay leaf and the Chorizo sausage. Let every thing warm together in the pan. The fat from the sausage will crystallize with the onions and on the pan, once this has happened you are ready to finish the dish.
Add the red wine and let it reduce deglazing the pan and making the sauce. Once the wine has almost gone take of the heat, serve straight in to a dish, and enjoy.
