Mussels with chillies and tomatoes

mussels with chilli and tomatoes

Mussels, mussels, mussels…this is my wife’s favorite dish. (in fact, my wife took this photo) The recipe is very simple, easy to prepare and so healthy particularly to those people who wants a low cholesterol diet. Because they are very low in fat.
They are also rich in minerals, including zinc and iron and a prime source of vitamin B12 , which your body needs in order to utilise folate.

The preparation time is approx 10 minutes and cooking time of 10-15 minutes…so “dim the lights, and here we go…”


2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 small red onions
2 pc tomatoes (diced)
1 cup water
1 kg mussels(cleaned & rubbed)
salt & pepper to taste
2 tbsp parlsey (optional)
3 chillies


1. heat sauce pan with olive oil, saute garlic, onion & tomatoes for 2-3 mins.
2. Add mussels cover with a lid and steamed for 3-5 mins or until they are opened.
3. add water, seasoned with salt & pepper, chillies and garnish with parsley just before serving.

great for starters….enjoy!!!!
