Ma recette préférée de moules


This is by far my favorite mussel recipe. It is so delicious and so easy to make...simply put everything in a pan and cook it for a few minutes. I made this for staff lunch today at work. They can be eaten alone or served over pasta or rice (the recipe yields a delicious broth). Or if you want to be a Francophile you can eat them with French fries (moules frites). The only diversion I did from the recipe below was that I added a sliced lemon simply because I had it at hand.


Moules Marinière
Makes 4 servings.
3 pounds mussels, washed, rinsed, and de-bearded
1/2 cup white wine
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 plum tomatoes, diced
Sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste
1 handful flat-leaf parsley, washed and chopped

Place all of the ingredients except the parsley in a low-sided pot or a very large skillet. Cover the pan and place it over a fast flame. Cook the mussels, shaking the pan occasionally, until they open, then cook for an additional minute. Remove from the heat and sprinkle the parsley across the mussels.
