This is super easy and tasty! Make sure to clean the mussels first. Soak for 20 minutes in cold cold cold water with a few tablespoons of cornmeal. The cornmeal helps the mussels to spit out the grit and salt. Then take a sturdy brush and scrub grit and barnacles off.
The recipes is awesome as is and the changes we made are simply for our tastes and what we have around the house. Thank you for the amazing recipe, I have had rave reviews over it!
Since we have made it a few times we have made the following changes: Instead of butter we use olive oil and saute the garlic before adding the rest of the ingredients. We tend to add a lot more garlic and pepper and some healthy dashes of oregano. We add a can of tomatoes with the juice instead of tomato juice, and after the mussels are done, I remove them and add a can of tomato paste. It makes a thicker sauce and we serve everything over pasta.
