Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 scallions, white parts only, sliced
  • 3 spring garlic, sliced (or 1 clove regular, sliced)

  • 3 pounds mussels, scrubbed and de-bearded
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

Heat a Dutch oven or other large pot over medium heat and add the olive oil. Cook the onion until translucent and tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and chorizo; cook until chorizo is crumbled and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Stir in the beer, scraping browned bits from bottom of the pot; add the mussels. Steam the mussels, covered, over high heat 2 minutes; stir in butter and salt to taste. Cover and cook until mussels open, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro.
