People queue up for ages at London’s famous Borough Market to get their hands on one of Brindisa’s barbecued chorizo and pepper rolls. The luscious, smoky chorizo picante is served up with sweet grilled peppers and spicy wild rocket. Team that with the awesome wooded flavour and sharpness of the sherry vinegar — the mere thought of it is making my mouth water!

Chorizo is great to cook on the barbecue, whether it’s cured and thinly sliced to wrap around fish, or the fresh, spicy-hot chorizo that needs to be cooked before being eaten. There are many varieties of chorizo but they all have one thing in common: they are made from pork, and get their flavour and colour from smoked paprika.

A little bit of Aïoli is great with these rolls, and now you won’t have to travel all the way to Borough Market to taste them!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
8 fresh chorizo picante, halved
1 bunch wild rocket
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
4 ciabatta rolls, sliced
or 1 pide loaf, sliced
extra-virgin olive oil
4 Fire-roasted peppers
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Prepare your barbecue for direct grilling. Place the chorizo on the grill and cook until nicely charred on one side, then turn over. There is a lot of fat in chorizo, so if the coals flame up, remove the sausages to a cooler part of the barbecue.
  2. Dress the rocket with the vinegar. Toast the ciabatta or Turkish bread on one side and drizzle with olive oil. Top with slices of roasted pepper and halves of chorizo, add some rocket and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Close the buns and get stuck in.
