Garlicky Herb Steamed Mussels

Author: Canadian Living

Mussels come naturally bite-size, making them well suited to get-togethers at an antipasti table. You can also prepare clams, such as littlenecks or Manila, in the same manner.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs mussels
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 green onion
  • pinch hot pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 plum tomato
  • extra virgin olive oil optional

Method

Scrub mussels under cold water; trim off any beards. Discard any that do not close when tapped.

In large saucepan, bring wine, garlic, onion and hot pepper flakes to simmer. Add mussels; cover and cook until open, about 6 minutes. Discard any mussels that do not open.

Add oregano, parsley and tomato. Drizzle with oil (if using). Serve hot or at room temperature.
