Mussels & white wine recipe

Hello dears!!!
Summer is here, with high temperatures and not so much desire to stay in a hot kitchen cooking :)
Well this recipe is fast and the it can be a perfect romantic dinner for your loved one.

I absolutely adore seafood and mussels in particular, especially with a glass with a wine ;)

So let's get down to business.

Ingredients:

  • 1 kilo mussels
  • 2 onions
  • 7-8 garlic cloves 
  • 1/2 kilo fresh tomatoes
  • tomato juice 
  • 1/2 glass of white wine 
  • spices
  • basil or parsley or mint 

Start by peeling and cleaning the garlic and onion, while keeping the mussels in fresh water. 
In a pot, fry the garlic and onion in a bit of butter and olive oil, then add water to cover the content. 


Be careful not to get splashed by hot oil, so cover the pot with a lid. Boil some water and then drop the tomatoes inside that pot - it helps to remove the peel faster. 
Add the tomatoes and tomato juice in the pot, along with the glass of wine and the spices. 
After 8-10 min, you can add the mussels as well. 
Cover them with a lid, and steam for another 7-8 min. Hint: the mussels which didn t open, throw them away.  


 
You can serve them warm with the sauce in which they boiled or next to some pasta. A glass of wine is mandatory :) 

Et voila: 



Kiss, kisses,
