Great recipe! Made using fresh New Zealand Greenshell mussels, green onions, and tossed in a chopped Roma tomato from the garden, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. We sopped up the delicious juices with a crusty baguette, and found this to be a very enjoyable meal. Thank you for sharing, ratherbeswimmin'! Made for the Cooking with Spirits April 2009 Event in the Cooking Photos Forum.
