1 dozen fresh mussels
2 1/2 cups canned low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup converted rice, uncooked
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup frozen English peas
2 (8-ounce) packages chunk-style lobster-flavored seafood product
1 (7 1/2-ounce) jar whole pimientos, drained and cut into 1-inch pieces


Remove beards on mussels, and scrub shells with a brush. Discard opened, cracked, or heavy mussels (they're filled with sand). Set aside.

Place broth in a large saucepan, and bring to a boil; add rice, curry powder, and salt. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Add mussels, peas, seafood, and pimiento; cook 5 additional minutes or until mussels open and rice is tender. Discard unopened mussels.
