I found this recipe in one of my Bon Appetit magazines. It is so delicious. It is a true treat, as mussels can be expensive.

It was tasty and looked good - Cut the recipe in half and still worked - I wanted to add some parsley at the end but held off. French bread is a must to sop the lovely sauce. I added bit more garlic . Used whole wheat baguette slices. Delicious as an appetizer Thanks Leilani for posting
