This is awesomeness in a bowl. Simple, elegant, and fairly easy to make. I made this exactly as directed except for two minor things. I used red pepper flakes instead of fresh peppers and I steamed the mussels with some of the seafood stock first to make sure they were all good before I put them in. I dumped the steaming liquid in too so I wouldn't lose any of the mussely goodness. I usually freeze leftovers for future meals because there's only two of us, but I couldn't with this because the entire batch was gone within 24 hours - it's that good.
