Lazy Braised Mussels / Dagnje na lijenu buzaru

This recipe is really great for hot summer days, as it comes together super quickly which means minimal time sweating next to your hot stove. I’m personally a big fan of mussels, but definitely not a fan of scrubbing their shells clean and getting rid of all the seaweed. But frozen cleaned mussels enter the stage here and make life immensely easier.

To make this recipe even tastier with more complex flavors, sub the water with white wine. We were out of wine however, so water was also fine.

METHOD:

Rinse the thawed mussels in a colander under cold water and leave to drain. In the meantime, finely dice the onion and mince garlic. Add olive oil, onion and garlic to a skillet on medium heat and saute for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Add in bay leaf, rosemary, butter, tomato paste, mussels, salt, pepper and parsley and give it a toss. Add a bit of water (or wine, if using) and allow it all to simmer for 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and drizzle generously with lemon juice. Serve immediately with pasta, rice or with nice crusty bread.

Recept u nastavku je savršen za vruće ljetne dane, pošto je gotov za tili čas što znači minimalno znojenje za vrućim štednjakom. Osobno sam veliki ljubitelj dagnji, ali nisam nikakao ljubitelj procedure ribanja i čišćenja njihovih ljuštura. Srećom, kao spas ovdje dolaze zamrznute očišćene dagnje.

Da bi ovaj recept bio još ukusniji i sa kompleksnijim aromama, umjesto vode upotrijebite bijelo vino. Mi ga nismo imali doma, tako da je i voda poslužila svrsi i sve je ispalo dobro.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 izdašne porcije / 11,71 kn po porciji / 23,42 za sve)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

Prstohvat sušenog ružmarina (0,15 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

250 grama očišćenih smrznutih dagnji, odmrznutih (15,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

¼ šalice vode (–)

Sok od 1 limuna (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Odmrznute dagnje isperite u cjediljci pod mlazom hladne vode i pustite ih da se ocijede. U međuvremenu fino nasjeckajte luk i češnjak. Maslinovo ulje, luk i češnjak stavite u tavu na srednje jaku vatru i dinstajte par minuta da zamiriše i omekšaju. Dodajte lovor, ružmarin, maslac, koncentrat rajčice, dagnje, sol, papar i peršin, pa sve dobro promiješajte. Podlijte sa malo vode (ili vina, ako ga koristite), pa pustite da se lagano krčka 5-10 minuta. Maknite s vatre i zalijte sa limunovim sokom. Poslužite odmah sa tjesteninom, rižom ili komadom finog hrskavog kruha.
