I have had many people tell me these are the best mussels they've ever had! Great as a light summer meal served with crusty bread to dip in the left over sauce!

I found this recipe in Bon Appétit and made it for a "mussels cook-off" - it won hands down! The recipe is quite simple, and tasty. The jalapenos don't add too much heat - just a little undertone; which is quite nice. I simmered all the ingredients for about 3 minutes before adding the mussels to soften the celery a little bit. I highly recomend this recipe!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add garlic; sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Mix in tomatoes, then next 5 ingredients. Add mussels. Cover and steam until mussels open, about 7 minutes (discard any mussels that do not open). Using slotted spoon, transfer mussels to large bowl. Simmer sauce uncovered until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over mussels and serve.
  2. Note: I put my veggies in the food processor and chop them up to make quick work of this one!
