How to make it
- Rinse the mussels under cold running water while scrubbing with a vegetable brush.
- Discard any with broken shells.
- Heat oil in a 6 to 8-quart stockpot.
- Saute the shallot, garlic and thyme to create a base flavor.
- Add the mussels and give them a good toss.
- Add wine, lemon juice, chicken broth and red pepper flakes; cover the pot and steam over medium-high for 5 minutes until the mussels open.
- Toss in the tomato, parsley and butter, recover the pot, and steam for another minute to soften.
- The tomatoes should keep their shape. Serve with plenty of grilled garlic bread to sop up the broth
