  • Beginner
  • Serves 2
  • 30 minutes

What you’ll need

  • 1 kg mussels, cleaned and debearded
  • 2 tablespoons 'nduja paste
  • 400g canned cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 100ml dry white wine
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Crusty bread, for serving

Let's Cook!

Step 1

In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, cooking until soft but not coloured.

Step 2

Stir in the 'nduja paste, breaking it down with a wooden spoon, until it releases its oils and begins to meld with the onions and garlic.

Step 3

Pour in the white wine and let it simmer for a minute to allow the alcohol to evaporate.

Step 4

Add the canned cherry tomatoes to the pot, season with salt and pepper, and let the sauce simmer for about 10 minutes to thicken slightly.

Step 5

Add the cleaned mussels to the pot, cover with a lid, and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until all the mussels have opened (discard any that remain closed).

Step 6

Once cooked, sprinkle with the fresh parsley and give the pot a good shake to distribute the sauce.

Step 7

Serve the mussels and broth in deep bowls with plenty of crusty bread on the side for dipping into the spicy, flavourful tomato broth.
