Directions

Heat a charcoal grill to medium high.

Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy Dutch oven over the grill grates. Add the red pepper flakes and garlic and stir until fragrant. Season with salt and pepper, then stir in the tomatoes. Cook, stirring, until some of the tomatoes begin to burst and you begin to smell their sweetness, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the wine. Once it begins to simmer, add the mussels and cover with a lid. Cook just until the mussels open, 6 to 8 minutes. Do not overcook or they'll be tough and chewy and no longer taste like the sea. Discard the mussels that do not open while cooking.

Divide the mussels and cooking liquid among soup bowls. Sprinkle with the parsley and drizzle with olive oil. Serve with the Grilled Bread.
Grill the bread over medium-high heat until golden and brown on both sides. Rub the garlic on both sides of the bread for flavor. Serve with olive oil.

    AMAZING RECIPE.... I watched Gabriele makes this recipe on the beach in Italy and had to test it out. I threw in a little extra red pepper in order to make sauce a little spicier. Great way to impress your guest. Thank you Gabriele and Debi!!!

    This is my absolute favorite way of fixing mussels. I've tried many recipes for mussels trying to find the perfect one and this is definite it. The broth and the mussels are so flavorful and the fact that this recipe can be made very quickly is as added bonus. I do fix it on my stove not on a grill. Delicious and healthy!!
