Grilled garlic mussels

  1. In a large saucepan, bring water to boil. Add mussels to saucepan (discard any that are already open). Cook, covered, for 3-5 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, until mussels open. Discard any that don't open.
  2. Break apart shells. Arrange half-shells on an oven tray. Discard remaining shells.
  3. Heat oil in a medium frying pan on high. Saute onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat. Stir in tomato, parsley, juice and Tabasco. Season to taste. Spoon mixture over mussels in shells. Preheat grill to hot.
  4. To make topping, combine breadcrumbs and parsley in a small bowl. Sprinkle over each mussel. Place under a hot grill for 2-3 minutes, until tops are lightly toasted. Drizzle with a little oil before serving.
