MUSSELS IN TOMATO BROTH WITH BUFFALO CHORIZO
The flavors in this dish complement each other nicely and the chorizo adds a nice spice! The sauce can be made in advance, leaving the steaming of the mussels for the last minute.

Ingredients: (For two servings.)
1 – teaspoon olive oil +
4oz. – Wild Idea Buffalo Chorizo
½ – cup yellow onion, diced
1 – clove garlic, chopped
½ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
1 – teaspoon crushed fennel seeds
1 – teaspoon chili flake *optional
1 – 15oz. can, diced tomatoes
1 – cup white wine
12 to 16 mussels, washed and de-bearded

*Store mussels in the coldest spot in your refrigerator. Place on a damp paper towel in a dish and cover loosely with a damp paper towel. Do not seal in plastic as they will suffocate. Discard any mussels that when pushed shut do not stay shut, or any open or cracked mussels.

Preparation:

1 – In a heavy sauté pan over medium high heat, heat 1-teaspoon olive oil. Crumble sausage into pan and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Remove sausage from pan, place in bowl and cover with saran. Set aside.
2 – Return pan to heat and add additional oil if needed. Add onion and garlic, sautéing until tender, about 5 minutes.
3 – Add seasonings, tomatoes and wine. Stir to incorporate and bring to a boil. *At this point you could remove from heat, cover and reheat when ready to serve.
4 – Add prepared mussels, cover and allow mussels to steam for 4 minutes. Most all of the shells should have popped open. Discard un-open shells.
5 – Add chorizo back to pan and stir to incorporate and heat.
6 – Serve direct from pan or spoon into serving bowls.
* Garnish with cilantro and lemon wedge. Serve with warm artisan bread.

Buying Shellfish………

 

When buying live mussels or clams, choose those with tightly closed shells. Avoid any that will not close if tapped, and those with broken shells, since they may be dead and could therefore cause food poisoning if eaten.

Grilling Seafood……..

 
To grill shellfish in the shell, such as oysters, mussels and clams, place them directly on the hottest part of the grill. They’re done when the shell opens. Discard those that don’t open after about 5 minutes.

Here’s a good tip for all you Seafood Lovers out there. Before cooking mussels or clams, soak them in water with a few tablespoons of flour for 30 minutes. As they open to ingest the flour, they’ll expel any sand or grit they contain.
