In This Recipe


  1. Slice chorizo and sauté over medium-high heat for about 1 minute on each side.
  2. Remove the meat from the pan and set aside.
  3. Using the same pan, add chopped onions, and ½ teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook for 3 minutes then add garlic and sun-dried tomatoes, and continue to cook for one more minute.
  4. Add half of the dry sherry and white wine, all the paprika, and another ½ teaspoon of salt. Allow the liquid to come up to a simmer, then add half the shrimp and cook for 2 minutes on each side (the shrimp should be opaque/pink and curled).
