Recipe Name:  Mediterrannean seafood rice with Chorizo

Book Name:     Full Steam Ahead

Tweaking details:  Cooked the rice for about 5 minutes longer than specified as I used paella rice.  (If I did it again, I would cut down on the cooking time for the peppers, chorizo and squid to compensate).   Also added a teaspoon of lemon juice at the end.

Review:

A very tasty recipe.  Next time I would not steam the mussels for as long as is suggested in the recipe (a total of 36 minutes!) and also would cut the squid into different shaped bits as the squid rings got caught around the blades.   

Score: (out of 5*)  4

Thanks Katya - agreed about the steaming time for the mussels.  Cooked some today and 5 minutes was possibly too much !!

Thanks for that. I've been looking at some of those recipes and thinking I should try them.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
