This easy dinner is bursting with flavor thanks to smoky chorizo, which adds an instant boost to any meal. And it couldn't be easier to make. Simply add sweet, extra-large shrimp to vibrant tomato-braised chickpeas, and dinner is ready. Serve leftovers over pasta, rice, or with a slice of crusty bread. Pro tip: wine imparts a welcomed acidity to balance and enhance this dish, but for an alcohol-free swap, use a splash of broth and a squeeze of lemon juice.


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 4 ounces dry-cured Spanish chorizo, chopped (about 3/4 cup)

  • 1 shallot, finely chopped (about 1/3 cup)

  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes (about 3 cups)

  • 1 14-oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • .50 cup dry white wine, or 1/2 cup chicken broth plus 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 pound extra-large peeled and cleaned raw shrimp

  • 4 cups packed baby arugula

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large, high-sided skillet over medium. Add chorizo; cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown and crisp, about 4 minutes. Add shallot; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  2. Stir in tomatoes, chickpeas, wine, and salt; bring to a simmer over medium-high. Partially cover and cook, stirring often, until tomatoes begin to break down, 6 to 8 minutes. Uncover; gently mash tomatoes with a wooden spoon.

  3. Add shrimp to skillet and cook over medium, stirring often, until cooked through and pink, 3 to 4 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, toss together arugula, lemon juice, and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a medium bowl. Serve topped with shrimp mixture.
