  • 3 fresh chorizo sausages, sliced into 3cm pieces
  • 250 gm rabbit, cut into 3cm cubes (see note)
Paprika oil
  • 125 ml extra-virgin olive oil (½ cup)
  • 2 tbsp sweet paprika
Beetroot, apple and watercress salad
  • 2 small beetroots, boiled, peeled and cut into 1cm slices
  • 1 granny smith apple, cut widthways into 5mm slices

  • 2
    Combine pork, chorizo and rabbit in a bowl, add half the paprika oil, season to taste with sea salt, stir to combine, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Thread 2 pieces each of pork, rabbit and chorizo in alternate layers onto 8 wooden skewers, reserving marinade, and set aside.

    For beetroot, apple and watercress salad, combine ingredients in a bowl and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Notes

Rabbit is available from butchers and may need to be ordered ahead. Ask butcher to debone it for you. Reserve remaining meat for another use or substitute with chicken.
