Chorizo Grill Dish (Assa Chouriço)
The chorizo grill dish (assa chourico) is a fun way to grill chorizo at your dinner or party table and delight your dinner guests.
Score the chorizo at 1cm intervals then pour a small amount of alcohol such as grappa or Portuguese aguardente (distilled alcohol) over the chorizo and into the base of the chorizo grill dish. Approximately 10ml is about sufficient to enable the liquid to be lit with a match. Warm the chorizo griller in the over or hob to warm up the terracotta.
Remove the chorizo griller dish from the heat and ignite the liquid in the base of the dish. Once alight, the chorizo skin will start to cook and release an incredible aroma. Turn the chorizo over regularly with a set of tongs to ensure that all the chorizo skin has had sufficient time to cook the inside of the chorizo.
Once cooked, place the chorizo on a serving dish and allow to cool slightly before serving. Serve with bread, olives and your favourite beverage.
We recommend placing the chorizo grill on a heat resistant board when serving at the table.
Generally most types of chorizo are suitable for use with the Chorizo griller dish. We do recommend using mediterranean chorizos. In particular, the Portuguese chorizo is highly recommended as it generally has higher fat content which will cook better on the Chorizo grill dish plus it is also usually blended with paprika that can really add flavour and aroma to the dish. Portuguese chorizo is widely available. Do you have a favourite chorizo? We’d love to hear your comments and feedback on this subject. Feel free to leave us a comment.
