Mejillones a la marinera (mussels in marinara sauce)

As we said in a previous post, mussels are super economic option for seafood, plenty of vitamins that can also be eaten in so many different ways.

Marinara style is a tomato and paprika flavour sauce with a white wine base. It is a delicious way to cook mussels. This sauce is also a very tasty and popular way to cook fish or clams.


1kg of mussels

1 garlic clove

1 cup of white wine


1 brown onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

2 tbsp of tomato sauce

2 tbsp of smoked paprika

1 cup of white wine

2 tbsp of flour

2 cups ml of mussels juice or fish stock

1 a small bunch of parsley, chopped



1 Clean the mussels if needed.

2. Put the garlic cut in half in a pan with EVO and cook in a medium heat.

3. Add the mussels and the white wine, turn the heat to high and put the lead on until the mussels opened. Don't cook them too much because we will add them to the sauce after and they will finish to cook.

10. Add the mussels and cook for 2 min.
