  • pot
  • Skillet
  • knife


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots minced
  • 1.5 cups of quartered grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 4 lbs mussels in the shell scrubbed clean
  • 6 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 cups seafood or fish stock
  • Whole-wheat sourdough bread toasted, for serving


  • Clean mussels by scrubbing and removing beards. Discard any cracked or open mussels.
  • Sauté shallots and garlic in olive oil and butter until fragrant and softened.
  • Add grape/cherry tomatoes, cook until they soften, then pour in white wine. Simmer briefly.
  • Add cleaned mussels, season with dried thyme and sea salt, and cover to cook until they open. Discard any unopened mussels.
  • Sprinkle with chopped parsley, then serve mussels and broth in bowls with whole-wheat sourdough bread on the side.


  • Make sure to use fresh mussels for the best flavor and texture. Frozen mussels may work as well but could alter the taste of the dish.
  • For a thicker sauce, let it simmer on low heat for a few extra minutes before adding in the mussels.
  • This dish pairs well with crusty bread or a side salad for a complete meal option.
