Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with mussels. Sprinkle chopped onions and garlic over the shellfish. Do not add water, as mussels produce all the water needed for steaming! Cook over high heat until most or all of the mussels open. Discard any that do not open.

Simmered onion in a small amount of butter until translucent. Added garlic and a little apple juice for sweetness just before adding mussels. Yum.

I was excited to make the mussels, but they turned out as a big disapointment. The mussels turned out flavorless and just really bland. It was truly missing other ingredients.

This is a great base recipe for steaming mussels. I used mine in a salad and seasoned the greens with lemon, sea salt, pepper, and fresh parsley. I think the mussels could be bland on their own, but nice to add to another dish. Thanks!!
