  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil 

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 6 ripe plum tomatoes, cored and coarsely chopped

  • 1 cup dry white wine 

  • 3 pounds mussels, scrubbed and debearded

  • 2 teaspoons fresh parsley, chopped



  • Warm the extra-virgin olive oil in a large pot with a tight-fitting lid over low heat. Add the garlic, and cook, stirring, until golden, about 3 minutes.

  • Add the tomatoes, increase the heat to high, and stir for 1 minute more. Pour in the wine and bring the contents of the pot to a boil.

  • Add the mussels, cover, and steam, occasionally giving the pan a vigorous shake, until all the mussels have opened, about 3-4 minutes. Discard any mussels that do not open.

  • Transfer the mussels to a serving bowl. Spoon the broth over the mussels and sprinkle with parsley.
