I've had a recent obsession with brussels sprouts. Usually, I make it with bacon which is fabulous (as bacon always is) but seems like everywhere you look is a brussels sprouts recipe with bacon. Then other day when I went to get something out of the spice cabinet I saw the smoked paprika which started me thinking how good this would be with Spanish chorizo and smoked paprika!
what you will need:
3 cups brussel sprouts, shaved on a mandolin or sliced very thinly
2 handfuls chorizo (the kind that's harder, more like salami than sausage) cut into small pieces
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp smoked paprika (the Spanish kind is the only good kind!)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1.5 Tbsp. olive oil
freshly ground pepperHeat the olive oil in a frying pan. Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, then add in the chorizo. Cook for another minute, until you can smell the chorizo and the oil starts to turn reddish. Add the smoked paprika and stir to mix. Add the shaved brussels sprouts and cook until tender. Add salt and ground pepper.
