Use frégola or risotto instead of rice for another interesting creation


  • 3 pounds fresh mussels
    1 medium chopped onion
    2 cloves minced garlic
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 1/2 cups rice
    1/2 teaspoon saffron
    1 medium sliced red pepper


  • Clean and scrub mussels.
    Steam in a kettle containing a small amount of water until mussels are opened.
    Drain them and retain the cooking liquid. Remove top shells of mussels. In a medium kettle, brown the onion and garlic in oil. Stir in the rice and saffron.
    Pour the strained cooking liquid and water over rice, to make 3 1/2 cups. Stir in the red pepper.
    Bake covered at 350 degrees F (180 C) for 10 minutes. Add mussels in their half shells and combine with the rice. Continue baking for 10 more minutes or until rice is done.
    Serve the paella in a preheated casserole dish.
