Obsessed with Mussels!
One more mussel receipt to enjoy on a wonderful late summer evening! Mussels are so delicious and easy to make. I changed the recipe today for a light wine sauce that was just outstanding
Two pounds mussels scrubbed and de-bearded, I love P.E.I mussels, so sweet!
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 coves garlic, minced
1 shallot, chopped
12 rainbow heirloom cherry tomatoes
1tablespoon chopped fresh thyme.
1tabelspoon chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1/4 cup dry white wine
Saute olive oil, garlic and shallot for 5 minutes, don't brown. Add tomatoes and fresh herbs continuing to saute for another five minutes. Add wine, cook on low for another five minutes. Add mussels, stir, cover, continue cooking on low for ten minutes until until mussels open.
So easy and so good!
