A quick and tasty mussel dish. The juices must be sopped up with a good french bread. Serves 4 but 2 can handle it with no problem usually.

Absolutely fantastic. Living on Cape Cod, we have access to many mussel beds and I can't wait until late Spring and Summer to go "musselling" and invite family over for a feast. Don't change this recipe one iota.

I feel like I just cooked a high end restaurant seafood entree. I used frozen mussels. Is that a bad thing? This recipe is so easy to put together and tastes great. I

These mussels were really great! Love the garlic and tomato broth, had no parsley so subed with green onion tops just for colour, the wine added a nice zip to it. Very delicious and we will be doing these again, thanks Tebo!!!
