:: Brindisa Chorizo and Rocket Sandwiches

I do have to apologise for another chorizo recipe but I think it may just be my current food addiction. Hopefully there won't be too many complaints! While I was in London recording episodes for Market Kitchen down at the Borough Market a few weeks ago, there was an amazing little Spanish food shop called Brindisa which was selling all different types of chorizo and an amazing selection of fantastic, high quality Spanish ingredients. Myself and Leonie, the amazing Market Kitchen home economist, picked up some and we actually used it in one of the dishes I cooked on camera.

Brinidisa also had the coolest little stall just beside where we were filming, where there was two busy stall holders with a massive hot plate frying up thick pieces of chorizo for the funkiest sambos I have ever seen. I later learned, after a quick google, that these little babies are famous right the way around the world, with mentions in many travel guides from Japan to Australia!

Brindisa Chorizo and Rocket Sandwiches
Isn't it amazing that some of the most tasty dishes are always the easiest. This recipe is hardly a recipe really, it's a case of assembly when you get down to it. Do try and get your hands on some good quality chorizo from a speciality Spanish food shop if you can, it makes all the difference in taste!

Serves 2
4 good quality fresh chorizo sausages, halved
2 roasted piquillo peppers, sliced
2 large handfuls of rocket leaves
2 ciabatta, lightly toasted
A good drizzle of olive oil
A splash of balsamic vinegar
A good pinch of sea salt and crushed black peppercorns

In a large hot frying pan, fry the chorizo halves until roaring red and sizzling on both sides.
Toast the ciabatta halves and slice in half.
Toss the rocket leaves in a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with a little sea salt and black pepper.
Assemble the sandwich, place the chorizo on the ciabatta, add a few thick slices of roasted peppers, and some dressed rocket leaves.
Devour immediately!
