Lovely. I actually made a couple of changes, but they worked well. Tomatoes are pretty mealy and flavorless this time of year so I omitted them and added a Tablespoon of Ajvar (a spicy red pepper sauce). Instead of bread (which we have a little trouble controlling ourselves with, I tossed the sauce with just a little angel hair pasta. Next time I might cut back on the cream just a little, because I think you can, and replace it with wine or broth. Oh and I started with a little shallots along with the garlic too, because I had it. This really was lovely and I served it with a green salad and the rest of the white wine.
Fantastic recipe! After they were cooked, we let them sit on low heat for around 15-20 minutes for the mussels to soak all the flavors from the sauce. My group even added a drop of our favorite hotsauce when serving.
This recipe was good, but I thought that the wine/cream ratio was off and maybe should have been the other way around. The sauce was not as creamy as I had anticipated! I will go back to my garlic, onion, cream and saffron sauce.
This truly was a treat for me, and I sat and ate them all myself :) Scrumptious with clams or mussels. I have had them both ways!
This sauce was fantastic. I've never cooked with mussels, so I used shrimp and scallops instead, and served it over pasta.
Delicious and simple! I up the wine and cream just a bit so that we have even more sauce to sop up with our crusty bread; there's just enough wine left over to enjoy. For us, this recipe with bread and a simple salad serves two people.
This is the best recipe for Mussels I have ever tried. We love it and have made it 20 times. We use the canned diced tomatoes and that makes it sooo good!! Thank you!!!
Awesome..might let each add salt according to their own preferences..
Wonderful! I had some leftover riesling so I used it instead of a drier wine. I did overdo the salt, I think I will probably only use a pinch next time. My daughter is not a seafood lover like me, but she absolutely LOVED this delicious dish. Thanks! :)
