A Recipe You Need to Make this Weekend (since I already tested it for you) – Grilled Mussels with Blistered Tomatoes
I love cooking. Like, a lot. Have I mentioned that? If I had the guts, I would open a food truck. But not just any food truck – a french fry food truck. More on that another time (I don’t want anyone stealing my ideas, ya know).
How do I find recipes? Mostly, I just search – Pinterest, Instagram, cooking magazines – are all great places for inspiration. Then I usually tweak something about the recipe. This week I give you 1 of the best things I’ve made in a while:
Grilled mussels with blistered diced tomatoes
Remove beards on mussels, and scrub shells well with a brush. Discard open or cracked mussels. Never prepared mussels? Be sure to read this first
Combine lemon juice and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl; set aside.
Sprinkle mussels with salt, black pepper, and 2 tablespoons lemon juice and toss them in a grill basket. Place mussels in a grill basket and grill, with lid closed, over high heat (400º to 500º) about 10 minutes or until shells open. Discard any unopened mussels – trust me, you don’t want to eat these.
When finished, toss mussels in lemon mixture and sprinkle with parsley.
Serve atop blistered diced tomatoes
Give it a try and let me know if you loved it as much as I did!
