Directions:
In Small saucepan, cover the chorizo with water and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat for 5 minutes, then drain. Thinly slice 1 of the sausages and finely chop the others.

In a medium bowl, blend the butter with the scallions, paprika and chopped chorizo and season with salt.

In a large skillet, cook the sliced chorizo over very low heat until the fat is rendered, about 4 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook over moderate heat until barely pink (about 2 minutes per side). Add the chorizo butter and cook, stirring until just melted (about 2 minutes). Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the water to make a creamy sauce.

Transfer the shrimp and sauce to a shallow serving dish and garnish with lemon wedges. Serve at once with crusty bread.
