Try Matt's tasty pot of garlic and chilli mussels!
Score a small cross in the base of each tomato using a small sharp knife, then place in a saucepan of boiling water until skins split (30 seconds). Refresh in a bowl of iced water, drain. Peel and de-seed the tomatoes, discarding skins and seeds. Finely chop.
Combine tomato in a large bowl with chilli, garlic, shallot, chopped parsley, chopped coriander and lemongrass. Add the mussels, toss to combine well and season to taste.
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over high heat until it begins to smoke, add mussels and tomato mixture, then add the white wine. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 1-1 ½ minutes, then cover with a lid and cook, shaking saucepan occasionally until mussels open (3-4 minutes). Tip into a colandereplaced over a bowl to drain cooking liquid.
To Serve: Transfer mussel and tomato mixture to a serving bowl, spoon cooking juices over the top and serve hot, scattered with extra parsley and coriander leaves.:
