  1. Soak 16 wooden skewers in water for 10 mins. Line up 2 skewers and thread on a piece of asparagus so it's skewered by both. Roll up a chorizo slice and thread onto the skewers. Repeat to make 8, with 4 pieces of asparagus and 4 chorizo slices on each. Mix the honey and paprika.
  2. Preheat a griddle pan or barbecue until very hot. Drizzle the skewers with the oil and season. Cook for 1-2 mins each side until grill marks appear. Transfer to a plate and drizzle with the honey. Serve with the lemon wedges.
