Mussels makeover time……

After last nights dinner I was left with a few helpings of Mussels, so now its time for their makeover!

I made some rice and cooked it with the leftover stock from the mussels to give it that kind of paella flavor and some achiote to give it a nice yellow color..

While the rice was cooking I took each mussel off its shell and set them aside.

Then I sautéed some onions, garlic and once they were nice and golden I folded in the rice.

Tossed in a handful of chopped cilantro and the unshelled mussels!

Its turned out fingerlickingly delicious, guess I could call it a simple Paella, but who cares what we call it if it tastes good right?.
