DIRECTIONS

  • Clean and scrub the fresh mussels in cold water, discard the open ones that after you tap them with a knife they would not close.
  • Add the butter to the pan and saute onions, garlic, procciutto ham and saffron threads For about 5-10 minutes at med temperature. Add 1 teaspoons of hot sauce.
  • Add the wine to the pot and mix well, then add the mussels with the parsley and basil (mix well) and tomatoes over; cook for 5 minutes at med-high temperature. Stir and remove open mussels (leave the closed ones in the pot for additional 1-2 minutes; if they do not open, discard them).
  • Add shrimp and cook for few minutes until pink; remove them also.
  • Make a roux with cornstarch and cream whisked slowly into the pot containing the wine mixture until it thickens up, test for salt and pepper and add the sherry to it; whisk well and return mussels and shrimp back to pot, heat up for about 5-10 minutes at medium to medium low temperature.
  • Serve with your choice of pasta (I prefer Linguini or Rigatoni).
  • *note.
  • This also can be served as is, with no pasta, just use less cornstarch in cream (not to thicken the sauce) and serve in a bowl with nice crusty bread.
