Evie, these are fabulous. Dave bought our mussels and they were very clean, already debearded and vacuumed packed so all I had to do was wash them. Because of this I didn't bother with step 4. We used dill, coriander, green onions and basil for our fresh herbs. The cream was exactly the right amount, more would have been too rich. Be sure to have heaps of crusty bread to sop up the sauce. With mussels $9 a bag this is a definite make again meal ;) Thanks for posting!
