    chia's Note:

    this recipe is from an old gourmet magazine. i made it last night and just loved it, quick, easy and the heat can be adjusted to taste. serve this with crusty french bread to get all the broth. this can be an appetizer for 6, but i can almost eat it all myself!

      Oh my, oh my, oh my. This is ambrosial. I loved the addition of fennel to the mussels. I did add less red pepper than indicated but the amount I did use added plenty of kick.

      Absolutely YUMMY! I reckon this is one of the best recipes I have ever tried. Love the flavour that the fennel seeds give to this yummy broth. We had a mix of different seafood dishes tonight but this was the only one that I couldn't stop eating. Used a tin of roma tomatoes instead of fresh. Chia, we love your recipes!

      This was wonderful and so incredibly quick and easy! I didn't have fennel seed, so I had to leave that out, but I'll definitely have to pick some up and try it again! Everyone loved this. Thanks :)
