Project Description

Red Wine Glazed Chorizo Bites

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Makes: approximately 72 pieces


2 tablespoons (40ml) extra virgin olive oil
1 kg cooking chorizo sausages, sliced approx. 2cm thick
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 1/3 cups (330ml) red wine
2/3 cup honey
1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chorizo and saute, stirring a few times, until the chorizo browns on both sides, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic, wine, honey, smoked paprika and black pepper. Bring to the boil and simmer until the liquid reduces to a glaze thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 3-5 minutes. Don’t reduce too much as it will thicken as it cools.
  3. Serve with toothpicks as finger food.
