Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    2 lb bag of mussels (yields approximately 8 oz meat)
    2 tbs butter
    1 tbs olive oil
    1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
    1/2 cup red ripe tomatoes, chopped
    3-5 cloves garlic
    1 cup dry white wine
    1 tbs fresh thyme, chopped
    1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Clean mussels with a small brush and discard any that are already open.

Melt butter and olive together in a pan. Add the onion and cook five minutes. Add the garlic, and cook another three minutes, or until onion is translucent and tender. Add the tomatoes, parsley, thyme, white wine, salt and pepper.

Bring to a boil.

Add the mussels. Stir well, then cover the pot. Cook over medium heat for eight to ten minutes, occasionally shaking the pot (with lid on) to keep mussels from burning.

Discard any mussels that have not opened up. Serve hot, with crusty bread to sop up the juice.
