Recipe courtesy of PEI Mussels
lb (1.8 kg) fresh PEI Mussels
tbsp (30 mL) butter
tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
large onion, chopped
clove garlic, minced
cup (250 mL) dry white wine (chicken, vegetable, or fish stock may be substituted)
can chopped or crushed tomatoes (28 oz undrained)
tbsp (15 mL) lemon or lime juice
tsp (5 mL) dried basil
pinch pepper, to taste
pinch parsley for garnish, chopped
Rinse fresh PEI Mussels under tap water. Tap any mussels that are still open and discard any that do not close after being tapped and rinsed. Set aside.
In a heavy soup pot or dutch oven heat the butter and olive oil on medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion; cook until the onions have softened, about 4 minutes.
Add the wine (or stock), tomatoes, lemon juice, basil, and pepper. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add fresh PEI Mussels, cover, and then cook for about 7 minutes longer, or until mussels have opened. Throw away any mussels that did not open. Check seasoning and adjust as required.
Serve in warm soup bowls, with a sprinkle of chopped parsley in each bowl.
