      I found this to be very 'savory'. I think that maybe the addition of sea salt may boost it up for us. Definitely a recipe to make again while tweaking it to our tastes. Thanks for posting!

      Awesome and simple. I used fresh Marjoram and Rosemary and also an herb gariic butter. Used good sourdough toast to soak up all the buttery, herby broth.

      We have a local restaurant that is known for their fabulous mussels . Well let me tell you not any more. Everyone knows if you want reastaurant quality mussels you come to my house. These are marvelous. I use a cheap dry white cooking wine and they are still to die for. The first time I made them I ate two pounds on my own and used half a loaf of bread for the juice.
