Have made this several times and fall in love with it again each time. I am planning on it for dinner tomorrow at the request of the Wife.

Nice, nice, Chia!! Usually I make mussels without a recipe, but I thought, tonight, well, there are so many recipes on F.com, why not actually choose one ...?! I liked yours because I wanted to use wine and cream. And, surprise, I did have the precious saffron!! Lovely, with an artisanal bread, and a fancy green salad as starter. I had 2 lbs of mussels (whole, in shell, as we are only 2 diners)). I would like to advise that, is you are using the full 4 lbs, maybe increase the wine and cream to 1 1/2 cups each. Anyway, thanks for a great main meal! It is high summer here in South Africa, and we are not in the mood for heavy red meat main dishes! Thanks!!!

Oh my goodness! These were amazing! I added garlic and some fresh lemon juice per personal prefrence. My hubby doesn't like mussels, (oh well...more for me!) so I doubled the cause, used half for shrimp and put atop angel hair pasta. He loved it! I loved my mussels even more! We both thought it was better than going to any restaurant we could think of! Thanks! I already purchased more mussels!

These mussels were amazing! A really delicate flavor. I did halve the sauce as I had some mussels leftover from last night. I added some garlic but not sure if it really needed it. I will definitely make this again. A wonderful dinner for very little effort.. Thanks Chia.
