Garlic Pan-Fried Bread and Chorizo

  Print this Recipe
 Serves: 6-8
200g / 7 oz chorizo sausage, outer casing removed
4 thick slices 2-day-old country bread
Spanish olive oil, for pan-frying
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
paprika, to garnish

Cut the chorizo sausage into 1cm / 1/2in thick slices and cut the bread, with its crusts still on, into 1cm / 1/2in cubes. Add enough olive oil to a large, heavy-based frying pan so that it generously covers the bottom. Heat the oil, add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds-1 minute or until lightly browned.

Add the bread cubes to the frying pan and pan-fry, stirring all the time, until golden brown and crisp. Add the chorizo slices and pan-fry for 1-2 minutes or until hot. Using a slotted spoon, remove the bread cubes and chorizo from the frying pan and drain well on kitchen paper.

Turn the pan-fried bread and chorizo into a warmed serving bowl, add the chopped parsley and toss together. Garnish the dish with a sprinkling of paprika and serve warm. Accompany with cocktail sticks so that a piece of sausage and a cube of bread can be speared together for eating.
