Linguine with mussels

1
Heat a large saucepan and add the mussels. Pour in the white wine and cover with a lid. Cook for 2 minutes or until the shells have opened
  • 1000g of mussels
  • 75ml of dry white wine
2
Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly before removing the meat from the shells, discarding any that have remained closed during cooking
3
Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the linguine for 3 minutes. Strain through a colander and then place the linguine back in the pan
4
Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with 1 tbsp of the olive oil to prevent the pasta sticking. Cover the pan with cling film until you are ready to serve
5
Warm the remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan and add the mussels and sliced chorizo and allow to warm through
6
Add the shallots, herbs and plum tomatoes and cook for a further 2 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and the lemon juice
7
To serve, twirl a large fork into the linguine to produce a cone of pasta. Slide off carefully onto a serving plate and spoon over the mussels, chorizo and herbs
