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!!
