Delicious and easy! I will make again but will add a bit of melted oil or butter to the lemon,garlic and parsley rather than sprinkling it in to the top as I think that will be nicer than having it dry. However this was lovely and enjoyed by everyone.

My favourite appetiser for guests! Have made them a few times and I always get lots of compliments. If it has to go fast then I make them without the gremolata though it's definitely better with.

Delicious. Easy, tasty and impressive. Fried the chorizo the night before, and made the gremolata, so just needed to assemble and bake Christmas Day.

Just a question - can these be eaten cold? I want to take them to a party ao will not be able to warm them through when I get there!

I first made these for Xmas canapés and they were a huge hit, I've also just done them on the BBQ (lots on one big skewer) and they were a hit again!

Delicious. So easy, I used a nice spicy, smoky chorizo. Made the gremolata but forgot to put it on before serving, still delicious good for anyone needing a gluten free snack.
