Prep Time: 30mPT30M
Cook Time: 20mPT20M
- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 8 ounces chorizo sausage (fresh, removed from casing)
- 1 tablespoon harissa (refer to cook's note below)
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 3/4 cup white wine
- 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
- 2 to 3 pounds fresh mussels (scrubbed and debearded)
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- French bread, for dipping
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
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.
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.
