  • 2 pounds live mussels scrubbed and debearded
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 shallot finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3-4 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 6 whole peppercorns
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups white wine I used a Chardonnay
  1. Over medium heat melt butter in a large pot (I used a wok) and cook shallot until translucent.
  2. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  3. Turn heat up to high and add the peppercorns, bay leaves, mussels, wine and half the parsley. Make sure the wine comes up 1/2 inch up the sides (otherwise add more). Bring to a boil then cover with lid. Cook until mussels open 6-8 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat. Place mussels in bowls and then spoon the brothy sauce over them. Add the rest of the parsley and serve with baguette bread.
  5. **Remember: uncooked mussels - discard any that ARE OPEN, cooked mussels - discard any that ARE CLOSED
