Just finished enjoying this yummy recipe. My husband remarked that’s it was much better than what he had last month in Rome! Wouldn’t change anything on this recipe. It was perfect just as printed.
I substituted Saffron with Paprika, and Basil instead of Parsley. me and boyfie liked it a lot. Although he complained the strong taste of Basil.
Absolutely delicious! The saffron is essential I used shallots and garlic. I also added the wine and saffron over the crushed tomatoes before adding the mussels. For something absolute special DO NOT MISS the saffron and lemon grind!
