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.
