Simply this is the dish for you if you like mussels. I gave this recipe to my friend's restaurant in Belgium, they now serve this tasty dish. Very much a dig in and share dish makes a wonderful starter or supper dish. You could serve with chips as they do in Belgium. I have given this as a dish for four, in our house that means one, as the dish is so good.
