1. Oven-Roasted Salmon with Risoni and Chorizo Pangrattato

Warning: once you’ve tasted these addictive, crunchy garlic and chorizo breadcrumbs with roasted salmon fillets, you’ll want to sprinkle them over your dinner every night.

2. Herby Chicken Paillard with Grilled Zucchini and Chorizo

Smoky, spicy chorizo and the light flavours of lemon, thyme and parsley give this dish substance and freshness. Pounding the chicken fillets turns this dish into a super speedy dinner.

3. Chorizo and Potato Tacos with Cucumber Salsa.

Up your taco Tuesday game with this heavenly combination. We've forgorne the traditional sliced chicken or grilled beef and used a mix of crisp potato, smoky chorizo and sweet onion instead. Placed in warm tortillas with a cucumber salsa and refreshing yoghurt, all you’ll have to do is wrap and enjoy!

4. Arroz con Calamares with Chorizo

After one mouthful of this wonderful paella-inspired dish, you'll find yourself in the heart of Madrid. The classic combination of squid and chorizo adds a lovely depth of flavour to this famous rice dish, while the lemon and fresh herbs help cut through the richness.

5. Chorizo and Potato Tacos with Cucumber and Capsicum Salad.

Hearty and flavoursome, this dish fills tacos with the flavours of Spanish tapas - beautiful chorizo and hearty potato. Topped with a fresh, spicy salsa, creamy yoghurt and a squeeze of zingy lime, it's a fantastic family-friendly meal.

6. Spaghetti with Chorizo, Dill and Capsicum

Ward off the winter chill with this hearty bowl of spaghetti with smoky chorizo and tomato. Cooked with mild yellow capsicum for sweetness and topped with creamy feta and fresh dill for a burst of anise flavour, this pasta dish is sure to hit the spot.

7. Chorizo and Tomato Stew with Couscous

This smoky Spanish-inspired chorizo stew showcases a double whammy of legumes including both creamy cannellini and crunchy green beans for extra protein and fibre. Soak up the deliciously fragrant tomato and capsicum sauce with a super-quick side of couscous.

8. Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya with Tomato and Capsicum

Hailing from Louisiana, jambalaya is thought to be a descendant of Spanish paella. Today, the red rice is a hallmark of Creole and Cajun cuisine with aromatic local spices and a kaleidoscope of vegetables and meats. This irresistible version includes chicken, chorizo and capsicum and is more mild than traditional takes, so even fussier eaters will be able to dig in.

9. Portuguese Chorizo Pasta with Roasted Pumpkin and Corn

A little piri piri seasoning and chorizo sausage add Portuguese flair to this knock-together pasta. We also toss the corn, baby spinach and roasted pumpkin in the fragrant chorizo oil to capture all the flavour instead of throwing it away, then finish it off with parmesan.

10. Sweet Potato and Chorizo Colcannon with Croutons

Often hidden inside this Irish mash would be a coin or a ring to bring fortune to who found it. Our version is still a treasure-trove – of flavours, that is! We’ve transformed the traditional side into the main event by adding chunks of smoky chorizo and crunchy sourdough baguette, and giving it extra colour with sweet potato.
