“What timing! Although I have eaten mussels many times, October 17 was the very first time I cooked them, and (if I do say so myself!) they were great. A friend and I ate every last one, and he raved about the flavor the whole time. This is my own recipe.” - by CASEY52
Original recipe yields 2 to 4 servings
- In a stock pot, combine the wine, juice cocktail, garlic and pepper flakes. Bring to a boil and add mussels.
- Cover and continue to boil for about 4 to 6 minutes or until all the mussels have opened. Discard any mussels that haven't opened.
- Remove mussels from liquid and keep warm. Pour off liquid to leave about 1 cup. Try not to discard the garlic. Boil the 1 cup of liquid until it's reduced to about 3/4 of a cup.
- Add butter and stir until butter has melted and sauce has thickened slightly. Serve mussels with sauce.

I didn't realize how easy it would be to make. Might even add some cayenne pepper to give it a little bite. Very good recipe."
"This recipe is absolutely amazing. The mussels were easy and quick to prepare . . .and tasted delicious. I used Clamato and added a bit more clam juice, and the mussels just sucked up all the flavors...." See more The dipping sauce created at the end was a wonderful touch. I suggest using New Zealand mussels."
