  1. In a large saucepan, combine the onion, bay leaf, garlic, carrot, fish stock, and wine. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 5 minutes to soften the carrot and onion.
  2. Add the mussels to the boiling mixture, cover, and cook over high heat until the mussels open, about 5 minutes. Shake the pan occasionally to help them cook evenly.
  3. As soon as the mussels have opened, remove them with a slotted spoon and set aside. Remove the bay leaf from the broth, and stir in the heavy cream. Heat through, but do not boil. Taste, and season with salt and pepper. Salt may not be necessary depending on the saltiness of your fish stock.
  4. Place mussels into serving dishes, and spoon broth over them to serve.

I used a whole head of garlic instead of one clove. Also, added shallots. Use half the amount of cream - they are still creamy and delicious, just not so heavy. And some diced tomatoes tossed on...

My boyfriend called this meal the "best meal I've ever made"! haha

I have made this dish twice for different folks and its a big hit! Very easy and very tasty.

I really liked this!

Use a low sodium fish stock, was pretty good, but will try another mussel recipe next time

This was really good! I served it over linguini for our anniversary dinner which worked well, but the pasta wasn't really necessary. A definite keeper.

The sauce was okay. Mine turned out a bit watery for a creamy broth, although I did use a good wine. I also probably won't try this one again either.
