Mussels make for a cheap, versatile and impressive addition to any dinner table. Super easy and quick to prepare, they’re also a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals. These Italian-style mussels are drenched in a delicious tomato, garlic and fresh herb sauce, so have plenty of crusty bread on hand for mopping up.
Heat olive oil in a large pot (with a lid) over medium to high heat
Add mussels and cook for 1 minute, then add garlic, onion, verjuice, tomato passata, basil, lemon zest and juice and chilli. Season with salt and pepper
Cover with a lid and cook for 3-5 minutes, shaking the pot occasionally to make all the mussels get a turn in the sauce
