This pretty unusual dish comes from the Hurdes region in Extremadura, Spain. It was originally served to fieldworkers at midday to gather strength through the vitamins and proteins. If you don´t like the taste of pure lemon in your mouth, squeeze the lemons and just use the juice. Enjoy!

  2. Fry the two eggs, leaving the yolk soft and place on top of the oranges and the chorizo.
  3. Drizzle olive oil and add salt to taste.
