Default Steamed Mussels

Steamed Mussels With White Wine
from the 3/21/10 Daily Dish

Daily Dish
An Elegant French Entrée

You don’t have to travel to Europe to enjoy authentic French cuisine. Get a taste of France with this delicious steamed mussel recipe that is surprisingly easy to prepare. The stunning presentation and garlic and herb infused flavor of this dish will leave your family saying “ooh la la!”

Steamed Mussels With White Wine (Phase 1)

Mussels are one of the simplest shellfish to cook and, visually, one of the most impressive. Low in calories, they’re packed with protein and a host of vitamins and minerals, making them a healthy alternative to meat. Bringing this dish to the table, steaming right from the stove, creates dramatic effect. Place two or three empty bowls on the table for discarded shells. Since most of the wine evaporates during cooking, this is a fine Phase 1 dish.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

Serves 6

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
3 pounds mussels, cleaned
1/3 cup white wine
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves or 2 teaspoons dried thyme

Heat oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add mussels, wine, and thyme; stir and cover. Steam mussels until they open, about 8 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking.

Remove mussels from the pot, discarding any that haven’t opened, and transfer to a large serving bowl. Pour cooking liquid over mussels. Serve hot with a few tablespoons of broth for each serving.
