Ingredients

  • Sauce:
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon each cayenne pepper, oregano, basil and thyme
  • Mussels:
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, pith removed and sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds cultured mussels
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons water

Method

Step 1

Make sauce: Heat oil in medium saucepan. Add garlic, saute for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce, water, Worcestershire sauce, herbs and spices. Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes. Set aside.

Step 2

Make Mussels: In a large saucepan or skillet, heat the oil. Stir-fry onions, celery, green pepper and garlic until tender crisp. Add mussels and tomato sauce mixture. Bring to a boil. Add wine and water. Cook, stirring constantly, until all the mussels open completely, about 5 minutes. Discard any unopened mussels and serve on a large warm plate garnished with Lemon wedges and parsley sprigs.

Step 3

Serve with crusty bread to mop up the spicy sauce.
