Fresh mussels are one of the fastest, easiest dishes to make because they naturally provide their own broth once steamed open. Combine them with ‘Nduja, the soft pork salame from Calabria, bursting with fiery regional chili peppers, spices, and garlic. Addictively good, add as much of it as you like, creating a mere tickle to incendiary sensation. The broth colors red and zings with intensity while the mussels possess their sweet succulence. This dish presents a marvelous new identity for mussels challenging other preparations. Dip crunchy bruschetta into the broth mopping up every drop.
