I did a full recipe so I will be getting two meals out of one as I was the only one eating it but be warned it is lives up to its name and is spicy but still ever so good. For the left overs I will heat up the liquid and then return the left over.... Read more

  How to Make
 
 

Step 1

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, 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.

Step 2

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.

Cook's Note: If harissa cannot be found, substitute 1 tablespoon of tomato paste plus 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper.

I did a full recipe so I will be getting two meals out of one as I was the only one eating it but be warned it is lives up to its name and is spicy but still ever so good. For the left overs I will heat up the liquid and then return the left over chorizo and mussels and heat them through and of course accompany with crusty bread an absolute must.
