Mussels in White Wine and Garlic

Be sure to buy live mussels. Any open mussels that do not close when you press their shells a few times are dead, and you should discard them.

    Really good, the timings were spot on and the mussels came out tender and tasty. I used parsley for the fresh herb, and added a squeeze of lemon with the butter at the end. Served with garlic baguette to mop up the broth and a tomato and rocket (arugula) salad with a lemon and parsley dressing. Very well received in our house!

    This is such a great recipe... showcases the mussels, no work at all, simple and elegant. I like to add some shaved fennel bulb. Yum!

    This was wonderful! I also added crushed tomotoes and it was a great main dish for a dinner party we had for my mom's birthday. Have plenty of crusty bread on hand, because the juices are amazing to dip it in! Big hit! Even my 3 year old was eating it:) I will make it again.

    This is such an effortless awesome dish! I serve it with angel hair spahgetti noodles drizzled with olive oil and some parmaggino reggiano and a salad of baby spinach, hearts of romaine, pear and gorgonzola with raspberry vinegrette.
