About this recipe: I love shellfish and especially mussels. I like the taste so much that I came back from the farmers' market today with some tomatoes and fresh mussels and created this recipe. So good! Crusty bread is essential, of course.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 onion, minced
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 500g fresh Scottish mussels
  • 2 tomatoes, cubed
  • 3 thyme sprigs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 100ml white wine

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:18min 

  1. Cook the onion for 5 minutes in the olive oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the tomatoes and thyme, then season with salt and pepper. Add the white wine and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the mussels (in several batches if the frying pan is crowded) and cover for 3 minutes. If the mussels are not opened, cover and cook for one or 2 more minutes. Remove any unopened mussels and discard. Serve immediately.
