      This was very very good! I made this exactly as written, served it up with some Italian bread, and sat back and basked in the compliments. Thank you so much for posting.

      Fantastic flavor! Made exactly as posted, except I use4d 1 cup chicken broth and 1cup Foster's Lager (which I needed to use up). The garlic really shone through, and the bread is mandatory for soaking. Made for ZWT8,

      This recipe is fabulous! I made half the amount for 2 of us, using New Zealand Kiwi green shell mussels. I made this as listed and used a slice of nice whole grain bread to sop up the delicious broth. Made for ZWT8. Thanks ~Leslie~! :)
