MUSSELS WITH WITH WINE & GARLIC
When the weather gets sunny/warm and I start smelling those fresh spring breezes, I crave seafood like crazy! Lucky for me, I have a fish stand at the farmers market and they're back for the season. They provide great quality fish and their shellfish is always cleaned very well.
This is such a simple delicious dish, I hope you give it a go.
MUSSELS & SCALLOPS WITH WHITE WINE AND GARLIC
fresh, cleaned mussels, white wine (preferably something on the dryer side that you enjoy),
2-3 cloves of sliced garlic, sliced onion, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp butter
optional: add a little fresh diced tomato near the end of the cooking time.
Heat the butter and olive oil on a medium heat. Add the onions and cook for a few minutes, then add the garlic and continue to sautée until just fragrant (a few minutes). At this point I add my wine, 1/2 - 1 cup and bring to a boil. Add the cleaned, drained mussels, stir to combine and cover. Give the pot a good shake now and again to avoid burning the ones on the bottom. Cook until all mussels are opened. Top with fresh chopped parsley and serve with good quality baguette to soak up all of the delicious juices!!
