    Nelka's Note:

    This one comes from Rex Hunt Fishing Adventures and the segment of Chef Lain Hewitson. I told a friend about it and she asked me to write it down. I decided someone else might like me to share it too; so, here it comes.

    1. 1
      Scrub the mussels very well and remove the beards.
    2. 2
      Take a generous bit of aluminum cooking foil, place the mussels in the middle.
    3. 3
      Add the onion, some parsley, black pepper to taste and the mashed garlic clove.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle with olive oil and a bit of wine; don’t get carried away because the mussels will let out some juice too.
    5. 5
      Fold up the foil into a very tight packet (‘tight’ meaning ‘well closed’); even wrap it up in a second foil sheet if you need to. NO moisture should be able to escape.
    6. 6
      Put in a lidded barbeque (Weber) in the direct heat of the coals (i.e. straight above them).
    7. 7
      Grill for 8 to 10 minutes, checking for readiness.
    8. 8
      Remove the mussels from the barbecue as soon as they open. Discard any that did not open.
    9. 9
      Serve with or without the shells with the juice on top.
