Wednesday, 02 April 2014


1 medium onion, chopped

3 tablespoons butter

3 cloves garlic, minced

8 ounces fresh chorizo, removed from casing

1 tablespoon harissa

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

3/4 cup white wine

1 1/2 cups chicken stock

2 to 3 pounds fresh mussels, scrubbed and debearded

1/2 cup heavy cream

French bread, for dipping

Directions In a large saucepan, cook the onions in the butter over medium heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and chorizo to the onions and cook until the sausage loses its raw color, about 5 minutes. Add the harissa and red pepper flakes, and then turn up the heat to high.  

Once fragrant, deglaze the pan with the wine, allowing to bubble for a minute. Lower the heat to medium, add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Add the prepped mussels and cover to steam until the mussels open, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the cream and stir. Serve immediately with plenty of sliced French bread for dipping.
