1 1/4 lbs mussels
handful of salt
handful of flour

2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 tablespoons onions, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tomato, chopped
1/4 teaspoon oregano
salt & freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

1/4 cup dry white wine

Wash mussels & remove beards.

Soak mussels for about 30 minutes in cold water containing the handful salt & flour (this will remove any sand left inside).

Melt butter in a medium sized pot & saute onions til clear.

Add garlic & stir for another minute.

Add tomato, oregano, salt & pepper and cook until tomato is soft.

Add wine & bring to a slow boil.

Add mussels, cover & steam for 6- 8 minutes, stirring occasionally until mussels are open.

**Discard any mussels that do not open!!**

Divide into serving bowls & cover with broth.
