It's the best time of the year to eat mussels and very good they are to at the moment. I had some in Cornwall a couple of weeks ago and they were fabulous.This sounds a strange combination but it really is very good. The French cook a similar dish with oysters.

Ingredients
 

  • ½ kg mussels, large, closed and well scrubbed
  • 2 glass medium-dry white wine
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped very finely
  • 1 good pinch of saffron
  • 124 ml double cream
  • 1 spicy sausage, sliced thinly
  • 115 g Chorizo, is perfect
  • 4 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • freshly milled black pepper
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • pinch fish stock cube

Instructions
 

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a deep saucepan, add the garlic, shallot, saffron and cook for 1 minute.
  • Next, add the thinly sliced sausage and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Pour in the white wine and fish stock cube, bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Stir well, then add the drained mussels, place on a tight-fitting lid and cook for about 4-5 minutes, occasionally stirring until all the mussels open.
  • Lift off the lid, and you will have the gorgeous aroma of the mussels will all be open.
  • Taste a little of the juice, check the seasoning, and adjust if necessary with pepper; you probably won't need any salt.
  • Using a slotted spoon, lift out the mussels into two large bowls keeping as much juice as possible in the pan.
  • Add the double cream and a squeeze of lemon into the pan and stir well.
  • Spoon the cooked mussels into 2 deep serving bowls. Ladle the delicious liquor over the mussels.
  • Serve with crusty bread and a very large spoon to scoop up all the juice.
