It is not necessary to cut the vegetables very fine because we will grind everything later.
We continue with the cooking of the mussel sauce and add the two cayenne along with the white wine. We allow to reduce so that the alcohol evaporates.
Now is the time to add the mussels previously washed. We cover and wait for about 8 minutes until they all open.
