Spicy Mussels with White Wine and Garlic Sauce
1 kg unshelled mussels
6 garlic cloves, sliced
1 red onion, diced
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 small, dry chili peppers, diced
½ glass white wine
4 tbsp low fat yogurt (optional: It is just as delicious dairy free; Your choice!)
sea salt and pepper, to taste
parsley or dill, chopped
Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add diced onion. Sauté for 5 minutes.
Add the mussels, chili, wine, garlic, salt and pepper.
Sauté until cooked; about 20 minutes, not really sure.
Add lemon juice, chopped herbs and yogurt (optional). Stir well.
Best served with roasted veggies or baked potatoes with julienne onion on top.
This awesome recipe is for my non-veg readers. It’s a healthy recipe which I’m sure you’ll love.
