    • 3tbsp dry sherry (Madeira or Marsala)

    • Heat a frying pan and fry the chorizo for a minute or two until browned. Add the sherry (Madeira or Marsala) and let it bubble for a few seconds, then add the sprouts and cook for 5 mins, or until softened to your liking, shaking the pan occasionally. Season.
