Easy enough for a briny weeknight meal or fab al fresco party dish, you’ll be a red hot cook all summer with this easy one-pot recipe.  Here is one of our favorite ways to prepare fresh mussels, Spanish style.  With a touch of flavorful chorizo and jalapeno heat, this seafood recipe is dressed to impress.

Related to scallops, oysters and clams, mussels are a great source of lean protein, omega-3 fatty acids and contain many essential minerals including zinc, selenium and manganese, to boot.

Just remember to sop up all those yummy juices with crusty bread!
