      Chop the onion and celery finely and cook them gently in 30 g (1 oz.) butter until translucent.

      In another pan, make a roux with 30 g (1 oz.) of butter and 1 tb of flour, add 1 dl (3,3 fl. oz.) of the mussel liquid and 2 dl (6,6 fl. oz.) warm milk, and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the sauce is smooth and thick.

      Add the chopped mussels, onion and celery to the sauce and beat in gradually 3 egg yolks and the lemon juice.
