Simple recipe for mussels.
1 1/2 pounds Fresh Mussels
1 Tablespoon butter
4 diced shallots,
julienned fresh ginger, I used about a 2 inch piece but I love ginger with seafood.
1/2 teaspoon salt,
2 cups of water
handfull of chopped flat leaf parsley.
Melt butter in pan, add ginger, shallots and salt.
When the shallots have softened add water and bring to a boil.
When the water has started to boil add parsley and mussels.
Cook covered until done.
For done I only cook them until just after they have opened. It is best to use a see thru lid.
You could use wine or a mix of wine and water but I would boil it to cook out most
of the alcohol.
