A variation from the classic Moules Marinière recipe using Chistorra sausage, a semi-cured sausage from Navarra made from minced pork, salt and paprika. The mussels are steamed with the fried Chistorra and lots of Txakoli, a white wine from the Basque country which is young, fruity with a slight characteristic acidity that provides good balance to the pork and paprika flavours from the sausage.
