Had to google sobrasada, never heard of it JB - a chorizo like sausage, right?

Learn from the mistakes of others. You haven’t time to make them all yourself.

Hi JD, yes it is similar to chorizo in that it is flavoured with paprika, but has a softer, more spreadable texture.  Here is something I wrote about it back in 2009 but I think I got the info from the European Commission as it has Protected Geographical Indication status.  It comes from the island of Majorca and coincidentally, we had some delivered yesterday.  You have to get it from specialist Spanish retailers here - not the sort of thing you get in the supermarket :(
