Very nice! Made this weekend and enjoyed it with friends. The lemony flavor here was a great touch and went well with the licorice flavor of the pernod. We really enjoyed all the garlic and onion here and the freshness of the basil which I picked from the plant I have on the front porch. Thanks Sass for a fast and tasty way to make mussels. *Made for Bevy Tag*
LOVED these!! I've done alot of mussel recipes and this is another winner for me. The Pernod adds such a different flavor, not overpowering at all, but gives it that little something special. I'll admit I didn't clarify the butter, but it was late at night, lol. The fresh basil was a great touch. I used PEI mussels. Made for the Babes of ZWT4.
