Ready in 20 minutes
This is a delectable dish that can be served with white rice or french fries. I serve it with brown rice cooked with garlic.
It is very fragrant and has the taste of a high end restaurant. Mussels are not expensive and this can be served as a main dish.
Clean and de-beard your mussels if necessary
Heat the oil and butter in a saute pan (with preferably heavy bottom) over high heat.
Add the shallots and pepper flakes.
Cook around 5 minutes until they appear soft but not translucent.
Add the diced tomato and cook for another couple of minutes.
Add the mussels.
Add wine and lemon juice.
When mussels start to open, add the blue cheese and melt into the sauce.
When all your mussels are open transfer to a bowl with tongs
then add the juices over it.
Serve with diced parsley sprinkled on top.
(don't forget to add a large enough empty bowl on the table for the shells)

Moomah 4y agoUnique and delicious! Thank you for posting this recipe. I served it with steamed artichokes and crusty bread, both excellent when dipped in the sauce.

bouqui 5y agoI thought the taste of the blue cheese would be overpowering, but it wasn't. It was delicious and has replaced Mussels in White Wine Sauce as my favorite way to make mussels.
ChefSandrine 6y agoYou can also used New Zealand mussels which are usually frozen and on the 1/2 shell - in that case when the mussels turn color they are done [I posted this recipe.]
