Anchor Bay Mussels with Tomatoes & Feta

This simple and delicious mussels recipe is restaurant-worthy. Just make sure you clean your mussels well before cooking: Give them a rinse under cold running water and use a brush to remove any barnacles or grit from the shell. Discard mussels with broken shells or those whose shells remain open after you tap them lightly. Pull off any fibrous "beard" that may be pinched between the shells.

2 servings


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • cup diced green bell pepper

  • cup diced yellow onion

  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced

  • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • 2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano

  • teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 pounds mussels, scrubbed and debearded

  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion and garlic; reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 10 minutes. Increase heat to high. Add tomatoes, wine, vinegar, oregano and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 10 minutes.

  2. Add mussels; cover and steam over high heat, occasionally giving the pan a shake, until all the mussels have opened, 4 to 5 minutes. (Discard any that do not open.) Transfer the mussels and sauce to a serving bowl. Serve topped with feta and parsley.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
