Cozzi siciliano

Traditional Mussel dish from my village in sicily. Very easy and a great crowd pleaser. One note , make just befor serving.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole shallots

  • bunch of parsley

  • 1 cup white wine

  • salt pepper

  • chilli - finely diced

  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • 1/2 kilo black mussels

  • 1 chopped ripe tomatoe (peeled)

  • butter

Method

  • 1.

    In a big pot melt some butter and fry your shallots till soft. add garlis and chilli salt pepper. Throw in your cleaned mussels and once you see stem beginning to form , splash in your white wine. PUT a lid on and keep it steaming until you see mussels opening , throw in your tomatoe and parsley - YOUR DONE. TURN OFF HEAT , place lid back on for 2 minutes . Mix through and serve straight away. Serve with some nice italian bread for dipping into the sauce created by the cooking.

Notes

DONT keep this warmed until you server as the mussels will shrink shrivel and become rubbery. Serve as soon as you plate.
ps - dont throw away the extra sauce!! you need it to dip your bread into..!!
