Tomato Chorizo Mussels with Linguine


Recipe Intro From domestikateblog

This recipe is sponsored by Maine Seafood but all opinions are my own.

Maine’s pristine coastline stretches 3,478 miles along the cold, clean North Atlantic. It’s home to a range of wild-caught and cultivated seafood. For this recipe I used Maine mussels, which offer exceptional flavor and quality. They are sweet, clean, plump and tender, with an unmatched meat-to-shell ratio.
