Really good. I substituted Polish sausage, which is what I had, but added hot chile-garlic paste, Cajun seasoning, and lots of smoked paprika to try to approximate the seasonings in Portuguese chorizo. Because I was using shucked, frozen mussels which were cooked, I added them at the end as the shrimp was about done and continued simmering just until everything was pleasantly hot. I served with crusty French baguette and Italian green beans.

Little changes but was delicious - used 2 cups of wine, added onion, doubled garlic, used a tin of chopped toms and doubled mussels

It was good, but I think it needed tweaking. I’d love to know what others have done. I think it needed onions, less tomato paste, less wine. More garlic! 😀 Any thoughts?
