I mean you look at this dish, a few aromatic choices, some seafood and some fresh herbs and you have yourself a

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped shallots or onion
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 2 Plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 Tsp. Salt
  • 1 Bottle clam juice
  • 1/2 Cup white wine or water
  • 1 Cup of water
  • 1 lb Mussels ( scrubbed)
  • 1/2 lb halibut or cod ( cubed )
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley

Method

  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil with butter over medium heat; cook shallots and bay leaf, stirring often until shallots are softened, about 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, garlic and salt and cook for another minute
  3. Stir in clam juice, wine and 1 cup of water and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat and cover for 10 minutes.
  5. Add mussels and halibut; cover and cook until mussels open and halibut flakes easily to the touch; about 6 minutes.
  6. Discard bay leaf and any mussels that did not open
  7. Stir in parsley.
  8. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: This will work with any of your favorite seafood. Mix it up with whatever is on sale and experiment. You can also feel free to add more flavors but I find less is more with this dish and the plum tomatoes are a really nice addition.

Ok, I am off to work and the start of another week. Have a great Monday and let me know if there is anything that you want me to post about or try in my kitchen. I am always up for new adventures.

Take care
