mussels with garlic and parsley




 
 
 For these days of Independence day more than eat meat I prefer seafood or fish also my daugther doenst eat meat like you knoe so I find these lovely mussels and I made the day before we go to the beach.
I love this recipe is simple (like I love) and delicious.
I served with white rice.
 
Ingredients
 
1 k and half of mussels
3 garlic cloves
1 cup of chopped parsley
200 ml white wine
100 ml fish soup
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon of cornstarch
 
Method
 
 
 
Clean and wash the mussels and place in a pot  and cover with water. Cover the pot and bring to high heat for a few minutes.
Remove from the heat must be open if any closed discarded.

Place the mussels in a pot along with the garlic cloves and 1/3 of the chopped parsley.

 Add the white wine and cook over gentle heat.
Allow the alcohol to evaporate and add the broth fish (this may be fish bouillon cube)
Add salt and pepper and cornstarch dissolved in cold water.
Cook, stirring constantly using a wooden spoon until thick.
Stir well with the mussels and let stand with the lid on for about 20 minutes to settle the flavors.
Serve accompanied with slices of toasted bread or white rice or boiled potatos.

Choritos con salsa y arroz blanco













Para estos dias de fiestas patrias no hago tanta carne como veo que es lo normal. Me gusta comer empanadas por supuesto pero me encanta hacer cosas con pescados y porductos del mar.
Estos choritos los hice el día antes de que nos fueramos a la playa y encontré una receta fácil y deliciosa.
Lo servi con arroz blanco pero tambien pueden ser papas hervidas.

Ingredientes

1 kilo y medio de choritos
3 dientes de ajo
1 taza de perejil picado
200 ml de vino blanco
100 ml de caldo de pescado preparado
sal y pimienta
 a gusto
1 cucharadita de maicena

Preparación

  17. I have never gotten into eating seafood or fish. For some reason I just do not like the textures or the tastes of any of it. Maybe someday I might change but it is not likely. Although your picture does look beautiful and I would totally eat every grain of the rice. I can just sit and eat a bowl of rice all by itself.

    Hope you have a great celebration of your Independence Day. And that you have a great time at the beach, the beach is a lovely place.

    God bless.

  23. I love your picture of the beach, Gloria and I love how yummy those mussels look! I wish I could get the family to eat them but they won't. The downfall of being the only one who grew up on the coast. I'm off to search for the pear and chocolate recipe =)

  29. Super buenos se ven estos choritos. Yo soy como tú en lo de la carne, me gusta un día, pero luego prefiero optar por mariscos o pescados. Creo que de esta forma el cuerpo y el estómago no se resienten tanto tras las comilonas dieciocheras.
    Te mando un abrazo y que tengas un feliz domingo.
