This meal is kind of like a surf and turf- well, I guess not really since there is no steak… but there is delicious sausage! This dinner/lunch is an ideal summer meal since it does not require too much prepping or cooking time. Everything cooks on the grill while I sit on my deck enjoying a glass of wine.
My favorite kind of sausage is the chorizo which has tons of flavor and a bit of a kick. It is a pork sausage with paprika and garlic and it is absolutely delicious. If health was not a consideration, I would eat chorizo everyday!
I bought some fresh chorizo and a pound of shrimp. I decided to make a simple cilantro garlic sauce to marinate and baste the shrimp and the chorizo with. That is all there is to this meal.
I made some garlic bread and a salad and I was done! We enjoyed everything on the deck and were not able to finish everything- perfect leftovers for another meal tomorrow!!!
