DIRECTIONS

  • Place the mussels in a skillet with the water and the lemon slice.
  • Bring to a boil and remove the mussels as they open; do not overcook.
  • Discard the shells and drain the mussel meat on paper towels.
  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet; stir fry the mussels for a minute and remove.
  • Add the onion and garlic; saute slowly, covered, for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat; stir in the parsley, paprika, and chile pepper.
  • Return the skillet to the heat and add the mussels (with their accumulated juices).
  • Give the mussels a turn in the sauce just to heat them, remove from heat, cover, and let sit for a minute or two before serving.
  • The mussels are also good at room temperature.
