This was so easy to make and very tasty. I used frozen mussels, so it was even faster. I broiled the mussels for about 5 minutes to let the cheese melt. And I served them with hot sauce to add some more zing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean mussels thoroughly, and steam in a covered pot for about 5 minutes, or until they open.
  2. Drain water, and discard any mussels that have not opened.
  3. Remove the upper shell, leaving the mussel attached to the bottom shell.
  4. Carefully place mussels on an oven proof plate, taking care to place them in such a way that they don't tip.
  5. Heat broiler to 500º.
  6. In a small bowl, combine butter, oil, parmesan, parsley, garlic and pepper.
  7. Using a spoon, put a little bit of the cheese mixture on each of the mussles.
  8. Broil 2-3 minutes or until the mussels have browned a bit.
  9. Serve hot with crusty french bread.
