Another great thing to do is I cook a chorizo sausage in a pan on the side. Then slice it up and add it to the mussels for about the last 1.5 minutes or so. Adds a nice bit of spicy awesome-ness to the whole thing.

I am planning on making this recipe tonight... any suggestions for some easy side dishes?
You have to be sure that there is no sand left in the mussels so I steam them first ,after I clean them,
in a pot with little water and white wine. Then I STRAIN THEM AND KEEP THE LIQUID.
Then it is the same procedure : pan ,olive oil, minced onion, garlic, sliced fresh tomatos and the liquid
which must be strained through a cheese cloth or kitchen towel , two or three times to be sure.
Then I toss the mussels.
GREEK ISLANDS TIP !!! ENJOY!!!!!
