Zuppa di Pesce alla Gallipolina

Cozze alla Tarantina

(Mussel soup Taranto-style)

Ingredients (serves 4 people)
1kg mussels
Optional: 100g clams
200g tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
1 chili pepper
CAZZETTA Extra virgin olive oil
1 large glass of white wine
A handful of chopped parsley
1 slice of toasted white bread per person
Salt and pepper

Wash and clean the mussels (and clams if you choose to add these), making sure to pull out all the beards. Skin the tomatoes (placing them in boiling water for half a minute to soften the skins) and chop. In a large pasta pan, put some olive oil, the chopped clove of garlic and half a chopped chili pepper (or more if you like it hot!). Then add a splash of white wine and once the alcohol has evaporated, add the tomatoes. Salt and pepper and when bubbling nicely, add the mussels (and clams) and cover with a lid. After about a minute, the mussels should be open. If not wait a little longer until they are. Then, sprinkle with some chopped parsley and serve with some crusty toasted bread.
