DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot over medium heat, place wine and 1/4 stick butter.
  • Add the shallots, garlic, celery leaves, and parsley and simmer.
  • Place mussels in a bamboo steamer above the pot.
  • Cover and let the mussels steam until they are all open, 10 to 20 minutes.
  • When all are opened, remove and discard the half of each shell without the mussel and place the half shell with the mussels in bowls.
  • During this time, reduce the mixture in the pot by 1/2 and add the remaining butter.
  • When the mixture is reduced by one-half or when there is just about no more liquid at the bottom of the pot, add 1/2 to 2/3 of the whipping cream to the pot.
  • (You can add the whole pint, it's personal preference.) Let the mixture come to a boil, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Pour the cream sauce over the mussels and enjoy!
