Garlicky Mussels in a Rich Lemon, Fresh Herb, Butter Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Rita1652

Moules marinières a classic French/Belgian dish, wonderful served with frites and a dollop of mayonnaise. Just bought 2 pounds of mussels. Tossed this together almost as fast as we ate it! Lots of fresh herbs and garlic. Make sure you have some wonderful bread to soak up the sauce! Or serve over pasta.

This is wonderful! I had all these wonderful herbs in my garden! We served it as an appetizer, with crusty bread, for Father's day. It was a big hit! Thanks!
