good recipe but made it with chorizo instead of the pork loin and much less oil than it asked for

It was great! I substituted the mussels for a small lobster and did not find calamari at my supermarket. I put more scallops. Next time I will add more shrimp and lobster and put less peppers (I used a whole bell pepper and it was too much). I will also put more saffras for more color.
