"A great beginner recipe for those who don't cook tons of seafood. These mussels are tender flavorful and just all around delicious! We've cooked this several times for friends and they're always a huge hit. :)"

Preparation

Discard any mussels that are not tightly closed. Scrub remaining mussels under cold running water. With a sharp knife, trim off the "beard" around edges. Place mussels in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Let soak 1 to 2 hours, then drain. In a 6-quart kettle, saute onion and garlic in 1/3 cup butter until golden and tender-about 10 minutes. Add wine, lemon juice, 1/4 cup parsley, pepper, and thyme; bring to boiling. Add mussels; cook over high heat, covered, 5 to 8 minutes, or until shells open. Shake kettle frequently, so mussels will cook uniformly. With slotted spoon, remove mussels to heated serving dish. Cover with hot, damp cloth. Quickly return cooking liquid to boiling; boil, uncovered, until reduced to about 2 cups-about 5 minutes. Mix soft butter with flour until smooth. Stir into boiling liquid, and cook, stirring, 2 minutes longer. Taste, and add salt if needed. Spoon sauce over mussels; sprinkle with remaining parsley. Serve immediately.

A great beginner recipe for those who don't cook tons of seafood. These mussels are tender flavorful and just all around delicious! We've cooked this several times for friends and they're always a huge hit. :)

Great recipe! I spent time removing the mussels from the shell . I also added some oregano.

Thanks for the recipe. Tried this tonight (with Pinot Grigio) and it was awesome. My husband couldnt stop raving about it and he's not a big fan of mussels in the first place. Will definitely make again.
