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.
- 1 kilo mussels
- 2 onions
- 7-8 garlic cloves
- 1/2 kilo fresh tomatoes
- tomato juice
- 1/2 glass of white wine
- 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 :)
