Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the bacon in a large, heavy pan over medium heat until crisp, about 8 minutes. Pour off all but two tablespoons of the fat. Add the shallots and jalapeno, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened but not browned, about 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes. Add the wine and ketchup and simmer until reduced by half, about 4 minutes.
  2. Increase the heat to high and add the mussels. Cover and cook, shaking the pan a few times until the mussels open, about 5 minutes.
  3. With a slotted spoon, transfer the mussels to four large shallow bowls. Off heat, stir in the lime juice, cilantro, and butter. Ladle the sauce over the mussels.
