    Holty's Note:

    This is a copy cat of Carrabba's Restaurant's mussels (they are incredible). I had to find their recipe. I hope you think they just come close.

      very, very close to the actuall recipe. However, do not add the lemon butter sauce until the mussles are done, simply toss them in it at the end, otherwise, the sauce will break.

      This recipe is absolutely delicious! I sauteed garlic and onions until clear and soft before adding mussels, but this recipe is spot on! I have even substituted fully cooked packaged/frozen mussels,still delicious and easy.

      We loved this but modified it slightly. I simmered the onion until transparent then added garlic before putting the mussels in. Then I added the lemon butter sauce at the end and only used about half of it. Yummmm!
