This is a very quick and simple recipe for Mussels. I am not a seafood eater myself but the family do enjoy these.

I used a kilo of mussels and had a pig out session as the DH doesn't care much for them but ate and few and reconed they weren't bad though a bit salty though I didn't add extra salt but did use salted butter. We ate them straight of the griller/broiler. Thank you Tisme for a great lunch, made for Edition 9 - Make My Recipe.
