DIRECTIONS

  • Scrub the mussels very well and remove the beards.
  • Take a generous bit of aluminum cooking foil, place the mussels in the middle.
  • Add the onion, some parsley, black pepper to taste and the mashed garlic clove.
  • Sprinkle with olive oil and a bit of wine; don’t get carried away because the mussels will let out some juice too.
  • Fold up the foil into a very tight packet (‘tight’ meaning ‘well closed’); even wrap it up in a second foil sheet if you need to. NO moisture should be able to escape.
  • Put in a lidded barbeque (Weber) in the direct heat of the coals (i.e. straight above them).
  • Grill for 8 to 10 minutes, checking for readiness.
  • Remove the mussels from the barbecue as soon as they open. Discard any that did not open.
  • Serve with or without the shells with the juice on top.
