When she first tried a similar dish at Kuleto's Italian Restaurant in San Francisco, Sunset recipe editor Amy Machnak was shocked at how well this unusual flavor combination complements mussels.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add wine, orange juice, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and chile flakes and let simmer 5 minutes. Add mussels and half the basil; cook, covered, until mussels have opened, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with remaining basil. Serve with warm crusty Italian bread such as ciabatta.
