Servings: 4-6
Preparation time: 30-45 λεπτά

2 lbs. mussels (without the shell)
1 medium onion
2 tbs olive oil
1 glass of white wine
1/2 tsp salt
2 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp tomato paste

1 dash of cayenne pepper
2 oz of feta cheese grated
a bunch of parsley chopped


Preheat oven at 200° C.

1. Saute the onion in olive oil until tender.

2. Add the mussels, tomato, the white wine and the salt.

3. Bring to a rigorous boil until all the alcohol has evaporated and all the mussels have opened (a closed mussel is indication that it is bad so remove any closed ones!)

4.. Add the garlic and the cayenne. Let simmer for 5 minutes.

5.  Remove the top shell of the mussels, sprinkle with feta cheese and parsley and grill in the oven for the cheese to melt and get a golden color.
