To be honest, I had never had never thought to order mussels at a restaurant as an appetizer or main meal until last year, when a friend got them and generously shared.
Wow, the flavor was so unique, and they were served with delicious bread slices to sop the broth up with. Now, I can’t get enough of them, and order them whenever I see them on the menu.
So as I’m perusing my way through the grocery store, I happened to glace over at the seafood counter, and I happened to see how surprisingly cheap they were ($3 a lb!) so I decided to make them at home!
I couldn’t have been happier with the flavorful result: spices from the chorizo meld perfectly with the tomatoes and white wine which are the perfect vessel for the mussels to cook in. YUM YUM YUM! This is one fancy and super cheap dish I’ll be making again and again, and is perfect for sharing with friends and family.
