    Lois M's Note:

    I was assigned this recipe for a Tapas party that was held for our Book Club discussion of Don Quixote. Even people who thought they didnt like mussels raved about this dish. I think because the mussel meat is chopped up and you dont have to get past the consistancy to enjoy the mussel. The recipe is taken from "Cocina nueva" The new spanish kitchen by Jane Lawson, a must read for Spanish food lovers. The only change I made was to reduce the topping ingredients, the recipe in the book made twice as much as needed.
