Moules Marinieres - Belgian Mussels

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Coasty

Mussels taste of the sea and a quick and easy to cook. I was always told to drink a glass or 2 of wine when eating mussels - why? I don't know.

I adore mussels and I loved this recipe! So much so I ate the whole 1kg of mussels myself!!! Served with crusty bread to sop up the lovely juices - mmmmm will definitely be making this again and soon! Thank you so much - made for ZWT6. Almost forgot, I added a finely chopped clove of garlic to the onions and celery just because I love garlic!
