After a busy morning at home, we were hungry. Desperate for food, but too lazy to go out.
The solution... THIS steamed mussels with white wine... which I made in under 20 minutes! ;) This time, I used frozen mussels straight out of the pack, and cooked it for an extra 4-5 minutes. For the stock, I sauteed garlic and shallots with olive oil and then added a cup of white wine and cherry tomatoes, and steamed the mussels. We had this with toast bread and wiped the pot clean. Yummy!

Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 11-13 minutes
900g frozen NZ mussels
1 cup white wine
2 tbsp salted butter
1/2 tbsp oil
2 shallots, finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
15 cherry tomatoes
A small handful fresh parsley
1. In a large pot over medium high heat, melt the butter and oil and add the chopped garlic and shallot. Saute for about 1 minute until lightly golden, then add the cherry tomatoes and white wine. Bring to the boil and once boiling, add the mussels.
2. Place lid on and allow to steam for 10-12 minutes. You may open half way through and give it a quick stir.
3. Sprinkle parsley over the mussels before serving. Serve with crusty bread, or any toast bread to soak up the lovely sauce/juices.
