Mussels Marinara is somewhat of a peasant dish and in some ways is a relative to the more famous bouillabaisse. BUT, if you love the sweet taste of mussels, for my money, there’s NO other recipe that showcases what mussels are really all about.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Sweet Onions, 1/4″ diced
  • 1/4 Cup Green Onions, 1/4″ diced
  • 1 Tbsp. Garlic, chopped

  • 1 pinch Saffron
  • 1/4 tsp. Cracked Black Peppercorns
  • 1/4 stick Salted Butter
  • 2 Tbsp. Fresh Italian Parsley, chopped

Instructions

  1. In a medium size sauce pot or casserole dish with a tight fitting lid, heat olive oil then saute both onions and garlic for 1 to 2 minutes. Do not burn.
  2. Add tomatoes, mussels, wine, Marinara sauce, saffron and cracked pepper and place lid on pan.
  3. Turn heat to simmer and cook approximately 10 minutes or until mussels have all opened and the mussel meat is firm and fully cooked.
