Mussels in tomato and barbecue sauce

    I adore mussels, but too many recipes suggest strong sauces such as garlic or spicy tomato which totally overwhelm the mussels. I wanted to be able to taste the mussels themselves, as well as eating something with a bit of a kick. Quick and easy to make, it turned out fabulous!


    1 person made this


    • 100 g mussels packaged in brine
    • small red pepper
    • two large sticks of celery
    • 200g cherry tomatoes
    • 2 tbsp barbecue sauce
    • oil for frying


    1. Heat oil for frying.
    2. Chop celery and pepper, cut tomatoes in half.
    3. Fry vegetables for about 5 mins, to heat but not lose their crunchiness.
    4. Add drained mussels and cook for another 5 mins.
    5. Add barbecue sauce, and mix into the vegetables well.
    6. Serve with noodles.


    Be careful not to overdo the barbecue sauce. The tomatoes will produce enough liquid to give some sauce and the barbecue just gives it a kick. I like to keep the vegetables crunchy so that there is a contract withthe soft mussels.
