Method

  1. Melt the butter in a frying pan. When sizzling, add the shallot and the crushed garlic, and stir around the pan for 1-2 mins to soften. Add the chorizo and cook for 4 mins over a medium heat to release some of the oils.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan until hot. Drizzle the slices of bread with the olive oil and rub the squashed garlic all over the surface. Put on the griddle pan and cook for 1 min each side until nicely charred with lines.
  3. Turn up the heat under the chorizo pan, add the chicken livers and sear for 1 min. Add the Sherry, bubble for 1 min more, add the cream and parsley, then season well. Put 2 slices of bread on each plate, top with the chicken liver mixture and a drizzle of oil, if you like.

I also used creme fraiche and loved this. I made it in a last ditch attempt to convince my flatmate that she likes chicken livers, however, even with the addition of all the lovely chorizo, she was still not convinced. I would recommend this dish if you do though!

We used creme fraiche instead of cream. It sends the bread a little soggy, but if you don't mind that the flavours are awesome. Quick, easy and tasty.
