Tomato Red Wine Mussel

Fresh Mussel is one of the seafoods i always eat, it is easy to cook and not very expensive.I can say there are many kinds of ways to prepare mussel, the most simple and easier way it just to boil/steam it until they open. Today i brought a box from the market and i only cooked half of it.It is very simple to prepare  My daughter told me that she wanted to eat mussel therefore this is specially meant for her. This dish only takes me a few minutes to prepare and cook. It is cooked from red wine but don't worry, it won't make you drunk!!!
