Stuffed Mussels

More seafood! For Vegetarians; note: large portobello mushrooms can be stuffed with the same stuffing!

Ingredients
20 cooked New Zealand Green Mussels with half shell (available frozen in most supermarkets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion (chopped fine)
2 tspn garlic
2 minced chillies
2 tablespoons chopped coriander (or parsley)
2 tomatoes, blanched, peeled and liquidised
juice of 1 lime
2 cups freshly made breadcrumbs (sandwich bread zapped with food processor into crumbs)
2 tbspn grated parmesan cheese
extra olive oil
salt to taste (not too much as the cheese is salty) - I didnot add any


Method
1. Preheat the oven at 200 degrees centigrade.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan, add the onions and garlic fry until transluscent.
3. Add the breadcrumbs, tomatoes, lime juice, coriander and parmesan cheese, mix
4. add more olive oil to bind the mixture if neccessary
5. Put the mixture into each mussel shell, place in a baking tray
6. Cook in the oven for about 8-10 minutes
Serve as an appetiser with chilled New Zealand Sauvignon blanc
