I too only had red wine on hand and looked for a recipe for mussels and found this one! So glad!!! Was extremely delicious. I used fresh chives instead of dry since I just happened to have some in the fridge that I needed to use up anyway! Loved the spicy kick of the chili flakes, but if I were to serve this to my mother, I'd just do one Tbsp. Thanks for the recipe! Pinning it :)
Excellent. I bough mussels at the store and only had red wine. Looked up this recipe on line and made it quickly (reducing the wine was the longest part). Used shallots in place of chives and cooked with the butter. I thought there was too much pepper flakes and problably a heaping tablespoon would do. We needed more bread to slurp up the sauce... yum!
This was not bad but, honestly, nothing special.
this is great. you can also fry a small onion and some of the garlic on very high heat tho give it a little sharper flavor. thanks
