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

  1. 8 ounces chorizo, removed from casings and chopped
  2. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  3. 1 cup finely chopped yellow onions
  4. 1 cup roughly chopped fennel
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  7. 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  8. 1 cup fresh tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
  9. 1 cup white wine
  10. 1/4 cup heavy cream
  11. 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley leaves
  12. 3 pounds fresh mussels, well scrubbed and debearded
  13. French bread, as an accompaniment

Directions

  1. In a large saute pan, cook the chorizo until brown over medium-high heat, about 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Drain off all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the pan.
  2. Add the butter and when melted, add the onions, fennel, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring, for 4 minutes.
  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.
  5. Remove from the heat and stir in the sausage. Discard any shells that do not open. Transfer to a deep bowl and serve immediately with hot French bread for dipping.

Serves 4 as an appetizer.
