the mussels Steamed mussels are different because they take an onion and tomato. Ideal as an aperitif summer days. Very easy to do with a result that never fails ... also admit many variations.
Ingredients for 4 people:
- 1 kg of mussels (4.1 kg per person) in the Ebro Delta.
- 1 tomato
- 1/2 onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- Oli d’oliva
- Herbs (optional): rosemary, thyme, bay leaf, etc.
Preparation of mussels:
Wash the mussels and they cut hair that joins the shoulder.
In a pan fry is a little garlic, onion cut into small bits and chopped tomatoes (or grated, or cut into small bits). When the sauce is done (about 10 minutes) add the mussels (without water) and herbs. They cover well and leave covered a few mintues until opened.
We discover that although we have no water, the mussels have made.
All served in a dish in the center of the table, washed down with a little oil.
If you want the stew thicker the sauce we can add a tablespoon of flour. The sauce can also add a few drops of anise ... or some fennel ... or a bit of thyme ... well ... what I mean is that it is a dish that easily can give a personal touch as you have at home.
Mussels must be Cruet (not raw at all, but neither are as annealing estallossos).
're an excellent dish.
