Grilled Mussels Fra Diavolo

When you try this spicy Italian-American dish (just twenty minutes hands-on!) you'll understand why the name is Italian for "Brother Devil"!

Serves: 4
Hands-on time: 20 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 1 cup jarred or boxed diced unsalted tomatoes, with juices (TRY:Pomì Chopped Tomatoes)
  • 2 lb mussels, debearded and scrubbed (TIP: Before using, tap mussels to check for freshness and discard any that do not close when tapped.)
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 8 1/4-inch slices whole-grain baguette, optional

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Heat one side of an outdoor grill on medium-high and remaining side on medium. In a cast iron skillet, heat oil on half of grill set to medium-high. Add onion and sauté, stirring often, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and pepper flakes and sauté until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Increase heat to high and add wine. Cover grill and cook until wine is almost entirely evaporated, 4 to 5 minutes. Decrease heat to low and stir in tomatoes.
  2. Add mussels in a single layer directly to medium half of grill.
  3. If serving with bread, add baguette to upper grill rack. Cover grill and cook for 3 minutes. Open grill, turn baguette and cover. Cook for 2 more minutes, until mussels open. (NOTE: Discard mussels that remain closed.) Transfer mussels to serving bowls and spoon tomato mixture and basil over top. Serve with baguette if desired.
