DIRECTIONS

Prepare all ingredients. In a large high sided skillet, heat over medium high with a bit of olive oil - add chorizo and cook for 5 minutes. Add the shallot, fennel and garlic, cook for 3-5 more minutes. Add cherry tomatoes, chili flakes, wine, lemon juice and mussels, cover with a tight fitting lid and cook for 5-7 minutes until all mussels are opened (remove un-opened ones and discard).
