1 lb. Mussels, Cleaned & De-Bearded
2 Serrano Chilies
3 Garlic Cloves
8 Basil Leaves
4 ounces Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 ounce Unsalted Butter
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 loaf Italian Country Bread
1/2 Cup Orange Juice
1/4 Cup Dry White Wine
1 teaspoon Chili Powder
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
Thinly slice both the garlic and Serrano chilies and zest the orange. Combine in a bowl with the orange juice and dry white wine. Combine chili powder and paprika in a separate bowl. Set all aside for future use.
Rinse mussels within a bowl of cold water. Discard any broken or open shells. Be aware, dead mussels typically float. Discard those as well. Grab onto the beard and de-beard! Simply drain and pat dry.
Heat the Extra Virgin Olive Oil until it is almost “smoking.” Add the thinly sliced garlic. Once it’s toasted add the mussels. Gently toss the mussels in the pan and then deglaze the pan with the white wine and orange juice mixture. You want to cover the mussels. As they start to open, remove them from the sauté pan and set aside. While the “broth” is reducing, after all the mussels are steamed open, add the chili powder/paprika mixture, basil Leaves, Serrano chilies and orange zest. When the “broth” is reduced by half, add the mussels back into the sauté pan with the unsalted butter, salt and pepper and gently toss together.
Remove the mussels from the sauté pan and place into a large serving bowl.
Pour “broth” over the top of the mussels.
Grab the loaf of crusty Italian country bread and slice evenly or tear to your liking.
