Mussels with Salsa

Ingredients

2 1⁄2 lb fresh PEI Mussels
1⁄2 cup mild salsa
1⁄4 cup water
flat leaf parsley or cilantro, finely chopped - optional

Method

  1. Rinse fresh PEI Mussels under tap water. Tap any mussels that are still open and discard any that do not close after being tapped and rinsed. Set aside.
  2. Place salsa and water in a large pot over medium heat. Add mussels and cover. Leave to steam for 5-7 minutes, until mussels are open. Discard any mussels that do not open. 
  3. Toss mussels with salsa and fresh cilantro, if using.
Notes: Serve with corn tortilla chips to scoop up the sauce.
