Mussels with a twist

Mussels with a twist


Serves 2-3 people

1 shallot 
2 cloves of garlic 
1-2 chili peppers 
2 cm fresh ginger 
1 red bell pepper 
1-2 spicy chorizo sausages 
15 g butter 
2 dl white wine 
2 dl cream 
1 bunch of flat leaf parsley 
1 kg fresh sea mussels 
Some bread for dipping


Check the mussels. Get rid of all mussels that are broken and all open mussels that don't immediately close when you rap them. 


Peel and chop shallot, garlic and ginger. Cut the chili pepper in 1 cm pieces. 

Cut the bell peppers in mouth sized pieces and slice the chorizo. Fry the chorizo in a pan, add the bell peppers and cook until hot. 


Melt butter in a pot and fry onions, garlic, chili and ginger until everything is tender. Add wine and bring to a boil. Add the mussels to the boil and put the chorizo pan on top as a lid. Cook for a minute. Remove the pan and pick up all mussels with open shells and put them in a MealKit bowl. Put the pan back and repeat after a minute. Repeat this for 5-7 minutes and get rid of the mussels that are still closed after that. Add the cream and bring to a boil. Add the chorizo and bell peppers and stir. Put the mussels back in the pot and stir again.  

Serve the stew in MealKit bowls. Put mussels, chorizo and bell peppers in the bowl. Pour the sauce over them and top with chopped parsley. 

Serve the soup flaming hot with a piece of bread and let the fabulous flavors fill your mouth! 

Tip! Collect sea mussels along the coastline if you're kayaking, scuba diving or doing anything else where you have mussels within reach. Don't forget to check with the proper authorities if you're allowed to collect mussels in your area and if the mussels there are OK to eat.
