Great Eastern's Steamed Mussels

I picked up a 2 lb. bag of live mussels in the supermarket and this is the recipe that was on the package. I prepared it using beer (you could use wine or beer). I would even add lemon juice and maybe some red pepper flakes next time.

ingredients

directions

  • Rinse mussels in cold water and discard any broken or open mussels.
  • Saute onion, garlic, celery and bay leaf in the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat for 1 minute. (I think it needs a little more time to get the onion a bit cooked and I think some butter would also enhance the flavor.).
  • Add the mussels, wine (or beer), and cook for about 4-5 minutes (covered) until the mussels open. Shake the pot occasionally while cooking.
  • Serve in soup plates, garnished with lemon peel, parsley, broth and crusty bread for dipping.
  • Serves 4 as an appetizer or 2 as a main course.

    We used beer instead of wine, added a splash of lemon and everyone loved it!

    The kids didn't like the mussels at all. I used chidken stock in place of white wine and the adults loved it.
