Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces dried, hot chorizo sausage, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 1/4 cup ( 1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons sherry
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 2 dozen shucked fresh oysters
  • 8 ounces angel-hair pasta
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 2/3 cup strained oyster liquor

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chorizo. Cook, stirring, until crisp, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels, and let drain. Wipe out pan.

  2. Step 2

    Melt butter in pan over medium heat. Add flour, spices, and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook, whisking constantly, 3 minutes (do not brown). Add sherry, and cook, whisking, 1 minute. Whisk in cream and oyster liquor. Bring to a simmer, and whisk until thick, about 3 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Add salt to boiling water; add pasta, and cook until al dente. Drain. Add oysters to sauce; gently poach until just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Add pasta; toss. Divide among plates. Top with chorizo; sprinkle with orange zest.
