Mussels Steamed in Ale

My new favorite mussel recipe.  The mustard adds a nice tang.


Saute 3 minutes:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large shallot diced
  • 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • Dash of salt and pepper

Add 3/4 cup ale and bring broth to simmer

Add 2 lbs cleaned mussels

Cover and simmer 7 to 10 minutes, until mussels open. Stirring a couple times.

Remove mussels to serving bowl. To broth whisk in 1 to 3 tbsp butter, 1 tsp dijon mustard and 1 tbsp chopped parsley. Pour over mussels. Serve with crusty bread.
