Mussels with Fresh Tomato and Pepper Sauce Recipes

Ingredients :

1 red pepper

2 tbsp olive oil

2 red onions, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

6 tomatoes, skinned and chopped

1/2 tsp crushed dried chili

125ml / 4 fl oz dry white wine

1kg / 2 lb mussels, scrubbed and debearded

2 tbsp capers

large handful of flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped

salt and pepper

warm focaccia bread, to serve

Method :

Cut off the bottom of the pepper. Put the pepper on the chopping board and slice off 4-5 flat pieces, leaving the seeds and core intact. Place the pepper pieces under a hot grill and leave to blister and blacken, then peel off the skins and roughly chop the flesh.

Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole. Add the onions and garlic and fry over a low heat for 5 minutes, but do not allow them to brown. Add the pepper, tomatoes, chili and white wine and simmer for 5 minutes to reduce and thicken the sauce. Add the mussels and capers and season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix well, cover and bake in a preheated oven, 200C (400F), Gas Mark 6, for 8 minutes.

Remove the casserole from the oven. Discard any mussels that have not opened. Stir in the parsley and serve with warm focaccia bread.
