Mussels are a true taste of the sea, full of flavour and quick to prepare with our cookalong video. Although they’re simply delish on their own, a little hint of chorizo, garlic and mint just takes it to another level. Stick a basket of bread in the middle for soaking up the juices, and you have a real crowd pleaser!
Wash the mussels, slice the chorizo, slice the garlic.
