Instructions

  • In a large heavy pot over medium high heat, add the oil and heat for about 1 minute. Add the chourico and cook it until it is browned. Remove the chourico into a bowl and reserve. Do not clean out the pot.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and  add the onions, red peppers and green peppers. Saute until the onions have softened, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic, chili flakes and smoked paprika. Cook for 1 minute. Add the lemon juice and lemon strips. Stir to combine. 
  • Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring until it begins to darken, about 2 minutes. Add the wine and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to a medium. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add shrimp and mussels to the pot and give it a quick stir. Cover and cook until the mussels open, about 8 minutes. Shake the pot occasionally but don't uncover.  Discard any mussels that haven't open and stir in half of the reserved chourico and parsley.
  • Ladle mussels and shrimp into a bowl and top with remaining chourico and parsley.
  • Drizzle with a little more olive oil and serve with lots of crusty bread to soak up the delicious broth.
