Directions for: Mussels Bruschetta


16 fresh cultured blue mussels

4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 clove garlic, chopped

½ cup white wine

2 ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced

1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

4 slices broad, thick slices of country bread

1 pinch hot red pepper, crushed


1. Rinse the fresh blue mussels in tap water.

2. In a wide, shallow pan over medium heat, warm half the oil. Add half the garlic and cook until the garlic turns gold, about 3 minutes. Add the fresh blue mussels, cover, and cook over high heat until the shells are open, about 5 minutes.

3. Add half the wine and cook uncovered until the alcohol has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. When cool enough to handle, remove and discard the shells.

4. In a clean wide, shallow pan over medium heat, warm the remaining oil. Add the remaining garlic and the crushed red pepper, and cook for about 3 minutes, until the garlic turns gold.

5. Add the remaining wine, and continue cooking until it evaporates, about 3 minutes.

6. Add the tomatoes and fresh blue mussel mixture, and cook for 5 minutes more. Add the parsley, stir, and remove from the heat.

7. Grill or toast the bread and top each slice with a portion of the fresh blue mussel mixture.
