    Spicy steamed mussels served with a white wine and tomato juice sauce. Perfect with lots of fresh bread.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 3 

    • 3/4 cup white wine
    • 3/4 cup tomato and clam juice cocktail
    • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 500g mussels, scrubbed and de-bearded
    • 3 tablespoons butter

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. In a stock pot, combine the wine, juice cocktail, garlic and pepper. Bring to a boil and add mussels.
    2. Cover and continue to boil for about 4 to 6 minutes or until all the mussels have opened. Discard any mussels that haven't opened.
    3. Remove mussels from liquid and keep warm. Pour off some of the liquid to leave about a cupful. Try not to discard the garlic. Boil the liquid until it's reduced to about 150ml.
    4. Add butter and stir until butter has melted and sauce has thickened slightly. Serve mussels with sauce.

    One of my favorite all time recipes, outstanding reviews every time. I add a can of olive oil and garlic flavored diced tomatoes to make for chunkier dipping. Also I cut all the butter out as the flavor is enough on its own. I serve it with toasted baguette (brush with garlic powder and butter before putting it in the oven if you want).  -  19 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Great flavour with the tomatoe and clam juice cocktail. I added a can of diced tomatoes to it and will add more of the tomatoe and clam juice, the hubby likes to soak up the juice with a baguette or sour dough. I didn't realize how easy it would be to make. Might even add some cayenne pepper to give it a little bite. Very good recipe.  -  27 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This recipe is absolutely amazing. The mussels were easy and quick to prepare . . .and tasted delicious. I used Clamato and added a bit more clam juice, and the mussels just sucked up all the flavors. The dipping sauce created at the end was a wonderful touch. I suggest using New Zealand mussels.  -  27 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
