Step by Step Instructions

Fill your IMUSA TAMALE STEAMER with 2 cups of water. Place the steamer tray at the bottom
above the water and secure it once you’ve reached the hinge on the bottom of the steamer.

With cold water, rinse your mussels to clean. Place them on top of the steamer tray in a single layer. Turn the heat to high. Cover and let the mussels cook for 15-20 minutes (or until they open).

Discard any mussels that do not open. Turn off the heat and set aside.

In a large IMUSA SAUCEPAN, turn your heat to medium and drizzle a tea spoon of olive oil followed by minced garlic and onions. Stir together and let cook for 5 minutes (or until browned).

Stir in the stewed tomatoes with a pinch of red pepper flakes. Let simmer for a few minutes. Add more pepper flakes to add spice.

Place the mussels into the sauce, stirring them until the mussels are covered in sauce. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
