Spicy sausage and paprika season a richly flavored one-bowl meal.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Add chorizo, and sauté 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Add bell pepper, onion, and garlic, and sauté 5 minutes. Add wine, paprika, and salt; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Step 2

Increase heat to medium-high, and add mussels. Cover and cook 2 minutes or until mussels open. Discard any that do not open. Stir in cilantro. Spoon mussels, sauce, and vegetables into 4 shallow serving bowls. Serve immediately with lime wedges.

Step 3

Pour: Citrusy whites pair well with spicy foods. For this dish, Edward Peterman of Domaine Select Wine Estates suggests Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavio.

Delicious. Friends loved it and it was easy to make. The sausage makes a big difference. Use good chorizo or smoked sausage for the best flavor.
