Roasted red pepper
Salt & pepper
¾ cup white wine
1 teaspoon fresh, chopped garlic
4 tablespoons butter
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

2. In a sauté pan, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Sauté red onion and roasted red pepper for 1 minute. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.

3. Add mussels, ¾ cup of white wine, 1 teaspoon of fresh chopped garlic (you can adjust this to your taste). Cover and let mussels sauté, checking for them to open.

4. Once all the mussels open, uncover and add 4 tablespoons of butter. Lower heat and add 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (add less or more to adjust heat).

5. As soon as butter thickens the broth, the mussels are ready to be served. Pour into a big bowl and serve with crusty bread. Enjoy!
