Oh my! These are heavenly. Loved the subtle sweetness of the sherry with the mussels. I used red pepper flakes rather than the red chili.

I just ADORE moules/mussels.....and I have numerous ways of making them - this has just been added to my favourites! A wonderful sweet flavour and one that did NOT interfere with the delicate metallic taste of the mussels! Thanks for posting this recipe ER - loved it! Made for ZWT3. FT:-)
