Spaghetti with mussels in white wine and garlic sauce.

I recently made this dish and thought to share the recipe with you. I haven’t made many seafood dishes in the past, but I knew I wanted to be more adventurous and try it out. It turned out really well. This is a great recipe for lunch or dinner time and great if you want something quick, easy and tasty.

Cooking time: 20 mins

To cook from Scratch You’ll need:
1 tbsp Olive Oil
2 Pounds of live mussels
1/2 Cup of white wine
2 Scallions, finely chopped
1 1/2 Garlic, finely chopped
1 Tsp Tomato puree
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Mixed Herb ( Parsley, Basil, Coriander)
3 Tbsp of butter.
Spaghetti
Quick tips:
–  Boil your Spaghetti in a pot and add a knob of butter or olive oil to stop from sticking together.
–  I learned: when it get’s to the Mussels make sure the mussels shells aren’t cracked or open as they are probably dead because they need to be alive before you cook.
– If you’re getting the already made pack from your local supermarket you wouldn’t need to do this. Just pour it into a pan and cook for 5-10 minutes adding your seasoning as you wish.
Dip the mussels into a bowl and rinse under water washing and removing any extra bits.
Preparation:
Heat oil in the pan, add butter followed by garlic, salt, pepper, puree and mixed herbs then cook for 5 minutes. Add mussels and  your 1/2 cup of white wine then stir. Cover and let it cook for the next 10 minutes until the mussels open. Add your boiled spaghetti and mix together, then sprinkle with parsley and serve.
