    Expat in Holland's Note:

    After having a wonderful dinner of mussels in a Seattle restaurant, I came home and tried to replicate the lovely dish. After several attempts at replication, I came up with one as close as I could. It is very nice and flavorful. Be sure to serve with a crusty bread to mop up the lovely broth.

      Wow! I am replete ... Bought a kilo of enormous mussels on the half shell, then turned to Zaar for a Marinière recipe. Expat, I used yours, and it was GREAT!! At the end, with the sauce simmering, I added a tiny bit of salt and extra lemon juice. My husband is now polishing off the rest ... Fortunately I bought a wonderful fresh European-style bread today. And I made a salad. Thank you for a deeelicious recipe!! Zee in South Africa.
