This Potuguese style dish is simple to make and great with crusty white bread and a fresh green salad.

Portuguese-style-mussels-and-prawns-

Dice 1 Portuguese style chorizo and fry it in a little olive oil. Add a sliced red pepper, a finely diced fresh red chilli and 3 diced cloves of garlic and cook until they begin to soften. Next add 2 tablespoons of tomato paste and cook for another 2 minutes. Add ½ a cup of white wine and allow it to simmer a little before adding 1 cup of tomato passata. Continue to cook over low heat for 10 minutes. A few minutes before serving add 300g (10½ oz) each of fresh shelled mussels and peeled green  prawns (shrimps). Garnish with parsley and serve with lemon.
