Grilled Chorizo with Lemon

This dish is a perfect appetiser for any function – large or small.  Chorizo is predominantly a full flavoured pork sausage.  This recipe is simply, yet, it will please every palate.

Selecting the style of chorizo to use is up to you, however, we do have a variety at our deli, and you will sure enough see that there will be many favourites!

Preservative Free and Gluten Free options – please ask one of our staff if you aren’t sure which one to choose.

Rule of thumb, one Chorizo usually serves 2-4 people as an antipasto with olives and fresh bread.

Chorizo – Mild or Hot

Splash of Olive Oil

1 Clove Garlic – sliced

Fresh Lemon Cut into wedges



Slice the Chorizo horizontally but not too thin.

Heat the olive oil in a pan on a low – med heat, and add the chorizo.

Make sure the pan is not too hot, as the chorizo will burn on the outside.

Turn several times to cook evenly on both sides, then add garlic, and cook for another minute.

Turn off heat, and squeeze 2-3 lemon wedges over the chorizo.

Serve in a bowl making sure all the chorizo flavoured liquid is included.

Accompany this dish with Fresh Bread and Wild Olives!
