You will need 8 bamboo skewers

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 lemon, juiced

2 tsp smoked paprika

2 tsp brown sugar

24 button mushrooms

3 chorizo sausages (see tip)

1 red capsicum

1 yellow capsicum

Tossed salad & lemon wedges, to serve


1Combine oil, lemon juice, paprika and sugar in a large bowl, season with salt and pepper and whisk until well combined. Add the mushrooms and stir to coat all the mushrooms. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to marinate.

2Cut each chorizo into 8 slices. Cut capsicums into pieces. Thread the chorizo, capsicum and mushrooms alternately onto 8 skewers.

3Heat a lightly greased barbecue plate on medium-high. Barbecue the skewers, turning often, for 6-8 minutes or until mushrooms and chorizo are warmed through. Serve with salad and lemon wedges.

Tip: Chorizo is a cured Spanish sausage made from pork and various spices. It has a strong flavour and a firm texture. Chorizo can be eaten raw but taste better cooked.
