Recipe type: Appetizer,Entree
Serves: 8
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 whole shallots, minced
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 whole tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • ¼ cup parsley, chopped
  • 4 cups white wine
  • 4 pounds black mussels
  1. Heat olive oil over medium high in a pot large enough to hold all of the mussels. Add shallots and saute for 1 minute, then add garlic and tomatoes and saute for 1 minute more. Add wine to deglaze the pan and bring to a boil. Add mussels, cover pan, and simmer until mussels open, about 5 minutes. Discard any mussels that didn't open during cooking. Either serve family style in a large bowl, or divide mussels among 8 bowls. Spoon a ladle of the sauce over each bowl and serve immediately with crusty French bread for soaking up the sauce.
