​Chorizo Mayonnaise

Posted by Emily on 17th Sep 2023

This delicious chorizo mayonnaise will become an essential part of your sauce collection. Bursting with flavour combines spice, smokiness, and creaminess to burgers, buttermilk-fried chicken, or chicken goujons.

Cooking the garlic slowly turns it sweet and sticky, while the chorizo adds a smoky, meaty dimension. Mayonnaise ties these elements together, and parsley provides a fresh counterpoint.

Adding a dash of lemon juice offers a cutting acidity, further enhanced by the parsley, making this sauce even more refreshing.

About the Ingredients

Garlic: When raw, garlic has a strong aroma and taste, but its flavour mellows and sweetens when cooked. It's a versatile addition to many dishes.

Chorizo: This spicy Spanish sausage comes in various regional varieties. All contain pork and are flavoured with smoked paprika. You can find both air-dried and fresh cooking chorizo, with smokiness and spice-level options.

Mayonnaise: This thick, creamy sauce is made from oil, egg yolks, lemon juice or vinegar, and seasonings. It's an emulsion, combining ingredients that usually don't mix well. A store-bought or homemade mayonnaise is a base for many other sauces and dressings.

Parsley: A staple in British cuisine, parsley comes in curly and flat-leaf varieties. It has a fresh, grassy flavour and is commonly used in salsas, creamy sauces, and as a garnish.

Essential Equipment

A blender is highly recommended for effortlessly creating a variety of delicious sauces and dressings. It's a sound investment, especially if you make homemade dressings and sauces for your business.
