I always thought cooking shellfish was quite intimidating. How do you know if you’ve cleaned the shellfish well enough? When is it fully cooked? This midwestern girl just never mastered seafood dishes until I discovered heat and eat shellfish. If I can do it, you can too!
Buy your pre-cooked mussels at any big box store and simply add them to a savory sauce. There is no need to go out tonight for a fancy dinner with your special someone when you can make Mussels in Pomodoro Sauce at home just like a trained chef.
This shellfish dish is high on fresh produce flavor. The dry white wine adds a sophisticated taste and because you don’t need the whole bottle for the recipe, you can have a glass for yourself while the mussels steam. Uh, yes please. I used Trader Joe’s Charles Shaw Blend 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, but any private label inexpensive dry white wine will suffice. Cheers!
