Product Description

A lightly spiced Spanish cured pork sausage seasoned with paprika and smoked over oak
You may think you know chorizo, but do you know oak-smoked chorizo? We've travelled to El Bierzo in North West Spain to find this wonderful example - where they have used oak wood to naturally smoke the chorizo in a traditional way. Try with a selection of Spanish meats and cheeses for cold tapas

excellent mild chorizo

Easy to peel and chop. Not too fatty or spicy (I add a bit of hot smoked paprika to taste) Delicious.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

never had it before

Never eaten chorizo before. Completely addicted to this. It's gorgeous. Another one in the basket already. Yummy.

No nitrates!

Well, at least according to the ingredients list. Not the best chorizo I have had, but good enough without the nitrates.

Far too soft

The sausage was so soft that I couldn't even cut it into slices, even using a very sharp knife. It just squished under the blade and ended up in small chunks. It really needed more drying out before packaging. Others I've had from Ocado have been much better. Still, the taste was good, which is why it gets two stars.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Not too fatty

This was delicious and not too fatty like some chorizo can be.


Marcello Tully's Chorizo, Bean and Bulgur Wheat Salad

Marcello Tully's Chorizo, Bean and Bulgur Wheat Salad

Bulgur wheat is used most commonly in middle-eastern cuisine and forms the bedrock of this light but interesting salad that can be rustled up in no time.

Chorizo Monkfish

Chorizo Monkfish

In case you hadn't guesses, this dish is heavily inspired by Spanish cuisine. Unlike some fish, monkfish is actually quite robust and can be confidently paired with some strong flavours. Chorizo complements it wonderfully in taste, texture and even colour, and it is definitely worth spending a little extra on a really good chorizo for a dish like this.
