I HAD A DISH VERY SIMILAR TO THIS ON THE COSTA BRAVA, and, in its simplicity, it struck me as being a classic summertime dish. In the winter, frozen beans would work perfectly well in this instance. Broad beans can be a little dull, but the piquant chorizo really brings them to life. You need to buy the cooking chorizo, pariila, for this dish, as it is a lot softer in texture and less harsh when cooked. You can even buy little cocktail chorizo that make perfect tapas.
