Chaurice Fish Sausage

Chaurice sausage plays an important part in Cajun cuisine. It was originally brought to Louisiana as chorizo by Spanish explorers, and was soon adapted and modified by local population. Chaurice is eaten on its own but it also goes well with beans and as an ingredient in Cajun dishes like gumbo, jambalaya or even with potatoes with sauerkraut. The fish and the seafood is extremely popular in Louisiana so Chaurice fish sausage should go well with many dishes.
