Spicy Stirfried Mussels


I love mussels but they are so time consuming to eat.

Then I always get a shell or grit and the meal is over.

Today I found frozen mussel meat at the store without the shells.

Of corse they where on sale so it was a given to buy.

Melt one tablespoon of butter

Saute a large chopped shallot

When that is soft

Add ten sliced grape tomatoes

Saute everything together

Add one teaspoon garlic powder

Add one teaspoon black pepper

Add 1/2 teaspoon salt

Add 2 cups of the mussels

Stir fry till the mussels are cooked and all the water has evaporated

Take one large handful of fresh spinach and place it in a dish

Garnish with carrot slices and  2 tablespoons fresh parsley

Drizzle with the juice of 1/4 lemon

This took all of ten minutes to cook.

It is so delicious and I don’t feel like a fat pig enjoying it.

The nice thing it that I still have a 1/2 bag of mussels in the freezer for tomorrow.
