Very flavorful dish! Loved the idea of the Spanish chorizo in between the shrimp to let the spices flavor the shrimp. We cooked this on our indoor grill which we plugged in outdoors -- it beats having to wait for coals to heat up. Made for the Spain - Shrimp tag, September, 2011.

When I first looked at this recipe I thought shrimp and chorizo was a weird combo, but WOW does the chorizo make the shrimp 'pop'. Tons of flavor. This is definitely one of my all-time grill favorites.
