Garlic and White Wine Mussels


2 lbs. Mussels, cleaned

2 T Butter

1 Large Shallot, diced small

4 T Minced Garlic

1 T Herbs de Provence

2 C White Wine


-Over medium heat, in pot large enough to hold all mussels in single layer, melt butter.

-Add in garlic and shallot and cook 3-5 minutes, or until shallots start to brown.  Add in herbs and wine and allow to simmer for about 7 minutes, this will allow all flavors to mingle.

-Add in mussels, cover and cook 5-7 minutes or until mussels open slightly.  Over cooking can affect color and texture.  (If any don’t open, I toss, though new research states you don’t have to do this, make your own decision on this matter).  Enjoy!
