  • Prep Time : 10m
  • Cook Time : 5m
  • Ready In : 15m

Ingredients I used:

  • Two pounds of BC coastal mussels
  • About 3 table spoons of unsalted butter
  • One half of medium onion or 2 shallots
  • 6 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 1 table spoon of extra virgin Olive oil
  • One cup of white wine
  • 2 pinches of crushed dried chili flakes
  • Fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • About a dozen grape tomatoes
  • Fresh Cilantro

How I made this:

Saute Onions and Garlic with Extra Virgin Oil and 2 table spoons of the butter until softened. Add fresh mussels, 1 cup of white wine and burn off most of the wine (About 2 minutes on high heat). Add the remainder of the butter, the chili flakes and grape tomatoes then cover for about 3-5 minutes or until mussels have all opened. Discard any mussels that have not opened.

Add fresh Cilantro and serve with your favorite bread or banquette for dipping.
