- 2 table spoon olive oil (Spanish better)
- 2 fresh bay leaves
- 300g or 1oz chorizo sausage by Antonio Mata
- 200ml or 7fl red wine
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 onion
Heat a frying pan until medium hot, add the olive oil (many people think Spanish is better than Italian), julienned onion and garlic finely chopped. Fry until softened (3 minutes more or less). Cut the chorizo crosswise into 1cm chunks. Fry it for 1 minute, just to see chorizo is sweating its juice. Add the bay leaves and red wine and cook until wine has reduced to coat the chorizo. We recommend Spanish 'Pago de los Capellanes' red wine. Serve into a terracota casserole. You can also cook this tapa in a casserole.
That's it! We will come back this friday with another fantastic tapa recipe, tips and more Spanish cuisine.
