Spicy Cajun Mussels

Works well with a pound of mussels - so good for two. Spicey!


  • One pound of cleaned mussels
  • One large onion sliced
  • Olive oil
  • Six cloves of garlic sliced 
  • One long hot pepper sliced into large chunks
  • One ripe tomato
  • Two tablespoons of cajun seasoning
  • One lime
  • One cup of mango flavored seltzer
  • Once bunch of cilantro chopped


In a 14" saucepan, saute the onion in the olive oil until starting to brown, about 6-8 minutes. Add garlic and long pepper and saute an additional two minutes. Add tomato and cajun seasoning and saute two more minute. Squeeze in the lime and pour in the seltzer. Bring to light boil and simmer for five minutes. Add mussels and cover. Cook until they open.

Makes a silky, spicy broth with greate texture from the mussels and veggies.
