When we lived in France, I lived mussels. Since moving back to the states, good ones are hard to find, but this recipe comes close! For Zaar World Tour 8

ingredients

directions

  • Scrub the mussel under cold running water. Remove beards and discard any opened ones. Put in a pan with the wine, cover and steam for 5-8 minutes.
  • Strain and reserve the cooking liquid. Discard any that aren't open. Remove the top half of each mussel shell and discard.
  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Melt the butter in a large skillet, saute shallots until soft, add the garlic and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Add bread crumbs and saute until lightly browned, remove from heat and stir in the herbs. Moisten with some of the reserved liquid. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the mussels ( in their half shells) and arrange on baking sheet. Top with shredded Parmesan. Broil in batches, for 1-2 minutes until the topping is crisp and golden. Keep the first batch warm while you finish the rest.
  • Garnish with basil leaves and serve.

    I loved the mussels...they are a bit time consuming...I used a little spoon to place the crumb mixture on the mussels other wise the crumbs seemed to hit the baking sheet...I really didn't taste the Parmesan cheese...so I would suggest increasing the amount of cheese...very tasty...thanks for posting it...=)
