Sausages have always been a family favourite! We love it in all forms – grilled, fried, curried; you name it. During my childhood, the most common way I enjoyed these were as a sausage curry which we used to have with kubbuiz (Arabic bread) or chappathis (Indian flat bread). Or my mum used to shallow fry the sausages, cut into bite-sized pieces and then hand it over to me and my siblings with loads of tomato ketchup. And a fight always ensued as to who gets the last piece.
What I like best about sausages is the fact that these are so versatile and can be enjoyed in several different ways. Though my favourite remains the grilled hot dog, I try and experiment with the different types of sausages that I get here (the variety here overwhelms me each time) and come up with something new each time.
In today’s recipe, I have grilled the sausages and cut it up into bite sized pieces. The sausages were then tossed with Cajun seasoning, a bit of olive oil and chopped coriander leaves. Cajun spiced sausages make a great starter especially with a glass of wine.
(I have used Don’s skinless footy franks for this recipe but you use any type of sausage you wish to)
