Mussels on the Half Shell

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Paja9203

I buy "New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels" on the half shell frozen from my supermarket. They are quite reasonable, and cooked this way, I think, very delicious. They make a terrific appetizer. I developed this recipe by taking the one on the box and adding lots of extra flavour.
