Bring water to boil in a pot. Cook the angel hair pasta according to the instructions on the package.

Bring water to boil in a pot and add mussels. As soon as all mussels are open, transfer the pot to the sink and drain the water. Rinse the mussels with cold water to get rid of foam. Set aside the mussels.

While boiling the pasta, heat up a deep saute pan with olive oil. Saute the onion and garlic for 2 minutes. Add the tomato, oregano and parsley; saute for 2-3 minutes. Add minced clam juice with some salt and saute for 5 minutes on lower heat. Add mussels, shrimp, and cooking wine; cook for 5 minutes.

Drain the cooked angel hair pasta and divide them equally into 3-4 servings. Take out the above seafood mix and pour it on top of the angel hair pasta. Garnish with dried basil leaves, and spinkle some dried parsley flakes on the dish; serve immediately.
