  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs tomatoes skinned, seeded and chopped
  • 1 pint dry red wine
  • 2 tbsps tomato puree
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 pints fresh mussels in their shells scrubbed and debearded
  • 8 large Mediterranean prawns
  • 4 oz peeled prawns
  • 4 crab claws shelled but with the claw tips left intact


  • In a large pan, fry the onion and garlic together gently in the olive oil, until they are soft but not brown. Add the tomatoes and fry until they begin to soften.
  • Stir in the red wine and the tomato puree. Season to taste, then bring to the boil, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  • Add the mussels, re-cover the pan and simmer for 5-8 minutes, or until all the mussel shells are open. Discard any that remain closed.
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients and cook, uncovered, for about 5-8 minutes, or until the shell fish has thoroughly heated through.
  • If you have to keep the mussels overnight, wrap them in damp newspaper and store them in the vegetable tray at the bottom of the refrigerator.
  • To make sure the mussels are fresh, whilst scrubbing them, tap any open ones sharply with a knife. If they do not shut tight, quite quickly, discard them. Also discard any with broken shells or that do not open after cooking.
