Mussels in Spicy Tomato Sauce

A popular Mediterranean dish

Recipe Courtesy of Delicious and Sons

This super easy Mediterranean appetizer only requires five ingredients and around 15 minutes of total cooking time. Top quality mussels are essential, but to make this dish really pop requires some top quality tomato sauce.  


For the Mussels

  • 1 Pound mussels, scrubbed, de-bearded, rinsed, and cleaned
  • 10 Ounces puttanesca sauce, such as Delicious and Sons
  • 1/2 Cup white wine
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • salt and pepper, to taste


For the Mussels

Add the Puttanesca Sauce, white wine and bay leaves to a medium saucepan.

Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes.

Add mussels, mix with sauce and cover with lid.

After 2-3 minutes remove lid and gently stir, saying “hello” to the mussels, and cover.

Repeat until they are all open.

Serve warm.
