    Expat in Holland's Note:

    This is an Emeril recipe that got rave reviews from my family. We love mussels, and here in Holland they are locally cultivated. So during the season we try to have them once a week. I try new recipes frequently to change the pace. This recipe is my husbands favorite and gets requested often. It has an amazing flavor. I have changed it a little to suit my family's taste from the original recipe. Have plenty of crusty bread, as the juice is oh sooooo good! This recipe serves either 2 meal portions or a first course for 4-6 people. Rule of thumb in Holland is to serve 1 kg of mussels per person, for a dinner portion.

      Definatly one of the best mussel dishes I have had that was not made in a speciality restaurant. I made this for our family get together before the festive season starts. It was a hit! The left over sauce has even been saved so that dad has something to dip some bread into when he gets hungry at night! Thank you very much for this!!

      Mussels and Chorizo are a winning team. The shrapness of the sausage goes so well togehter with mussels. The sauce is to die for, so have enought bread for dipping up this delicate sauce. I followed the recipe as described here without any problems. I used a little less of heavy cream to get the thickness of the sauce I like. I served it with the white wine I used for cooking and baguette.
