Ingredients

spicy cooking chorizo, about 80g each
10 
sheets of brique pastry (North African paper-thin pancakes)
tbsp plain flour
large pan 
vegetable oil

Directions

Cut the chorizo in half, lengthways, then cut each half in three strips.

Roll each chorizo strip in just enough brique pastry to go round twice.

Close the edges and end with a little paste made with flour and water, pressing well to make sure they are properly sealed.

Heat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large pan. Before adding the chorizo rolls, test the temperature of the oil by dropping in a small piece of bread. If it sizzles and turns golden the oil is ready.

Deep fry the rolls for a few minutes until golden.

Alternatively, brush them with olive oil and bake in a hot oven, 200°C/gas 6, for 5-6 minutes until crispy.

Pairing Amontillado with food

Amontillado should be served at a temperature of between 12 and 14º C.

It is an ideal wine to accompany soups and consommés, white meat, blue fish (tuna), wild mushrooms and semi-cured cheeses.

It combines perfectly with vegetables such as asparagus and artichokes.
