Chorizo Mussel Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Chorizo, Mussels, and Tomatoes

It's easy to forget that shellfish, like clams and mussels, are an affordable and quick-cooking option for weeknight meals. That's why if you're a fan of shellfish, you should make an effort to add these delectable bivalves to your repertoire! Start with this finger-licking good mussel recipe. The mussels are cooked in a flavorful broth that consists of chorizo, fresh tomatoes, white wine, and garlic. The ingredient list calls for a small amount of cream, but if you want to omit it, the dish won't lose anything. For a complete meal, serve with crusty French bread (for dipping in the delicious sauce!) and a side of mixed greens. Pair the mussels with the wine you used to make the broth.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup finely chopped yellow onions

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  3. Add the garlic and tomatoes, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  4. Add the wine, cream, and parsley, and bring to a boil. Add the mussels, cover, and cook until the shells have opened, about 4 minutes.

Serves 4 as an appetizer.
