Clams, mussels, prawns and calamari, chorizo, saffron, old Mout cider stock, fava beans and smoked paprika

No doubting that seafood is a favorite of mine and this dish with the cider is no exception to the rule. Great hearty, fresh and delightful Mediterranean meal.

Serves 4

Olive oil
3 cloves of garlic- finely chopped
12 mussels (scrubbed and cleaned)
12 clams – scrubbed and rinsed
pinch of saffron
200 ml fish stock

1 chorizo sausage
12 raw (green) prawns

Cover and cook until the mussels and clams have opened.
When the shellfish have opened remove them from the pan and set aside.
