Recipe: Chorizo burger with paprika

hamburger-rt.jpg

A burger done well is a thing of beauty. And something we should all try to perfect. So, here’s an easy place to start – a deceptively simple recipe which calls on the spicy qualities of chorizo and paprika for a midday meal with a Spanish kick. It’s great with a crisp green salad, but it will work equally well with couscous or chunky potato wedges.

  • Large handful of rocket

For the relish:

  • 1 large tomato, finely diced
  • 1 large white onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp paprika

The burger seemed to say “EAT ME”.
