Enjoy the mussels in this dish, smothered with a curry marinara sauce. Serve with fresh, country-style bread so you can scoop up all the wonderful sauce.


  • 1 16 ounce can of whole peeled tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons of ketchup
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
  • 3 basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 pound of mussels
  • 1 teaspoon of curry
  • 1/2 cup fish stock
  • Fresh parsley to garnish


  1. In a medium-sized sauté pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onions and sauté until soft and translucent, approximately 6 minutes, and then add the ketchup and continue to cook for 1 more minute.
  2. Add the tomatoes, stock, basil, sugar and thyme and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to simmer the sauce for 40 minutes.
  3. Empty the marinara in a dutch oven and set over medium heat. Add the curry and the fish stock and stir well.
  4. Drop in the mussels and gently stir for 4 minutes as they cook. Discard any mussels that do not open.
  5. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve immediately.
