6 ounces smoked chorizo (2 links), sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
1 onion, peeled and thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 cup sherry
1 pound mussels, scrubbed and de-bearded
1. Combine the chorizo, onion, garlic, and olive oil in a small bowl. Evenly spread ingredients on the baking pan and put in the oven with the rack in the lower rack position. Set to Bake Steam at 450°F for 20 minutes.
2. Remove the pan from the oven and carefully adjust the oven rack to the middle position. Stir in the sherry with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan and add the mussels in an even layer. Return the pan to the oven and set to Steam at 210°F for 20 minutes until mussels have fully opened. Start checking the mussels at 15 minutes. Discard any mussels that have not opened.
