  • Stir the fresh blue mussels in a colander while rinsing in tap water. Set aside for a few minutes. Tap any that are open and discard those that don't close in response to the tap.
  • Add 1 tablespoon butter to pot, cook chopped onion and celery, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the beer and fresh mussels.
  • Cover and steam over high heat until the mussels are open (6–8 minutes).
  • Squeeze the lemon juice over the mussels, add some parsley and pour into a large bowl to share. Don't forget to sip the sauce.

    I made these for a St. Patrick's Day appetizer - they were absolutely delicious! I didn't have celery, but they were fantastic nonetheless. Everyone loved them, even one person who does not particularly care for mussels. Thank you for the recipe!
