SHOW US YOUR MUSSELS! MUSSELS WITH TOMATO AND CHILLI

SHOW US YOUR MUSSELS!

Mussels with Tomato and Chilli.

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe Tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Garlic Clove, finely chopped
  • 1 Shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 Red or Green Chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • Small glass dry white wine
  • 1 tsp Tomato paste
  • Pinch of Sugar
  • 1kg cleaned Mussels
  • Good handful Basil leaves
  1. Put the tomatoes in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water, leave for 3 mins, then drain and peel. Quarter the tomatoes and scoop out and discard the seeds using a teaspoon. Roughly chop the tomato flesh.

  2. Heat the oil in a large pan with a tight- fitting lid. Add the garlic, shallot and chilli, then gently fry for 2-3 mins until softened. Pour in the wine and add the tomatoes, paste, sugar and seasoning (mussels are naturally salty so take care with the salt). Stir well and simmer for 2 mins.

  3. Tip in the mussels and give them a stir. Cover tightly and steam for 3-4 mins, shaking the pan halfway through, until the shells have opened.

  4. Discard any shells that remain shut, then divide the mussels between two bowls and add the basil leaves. Provide a large bowl for the empty shells.
