Ingredients

  • 1 k bag of mussels
  • White wine (glass)
  • Cream (200 ml)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Parsley

Instructions

First clean your mussels if you haven't got vacuum packed mussels. Dice your onion,  fry in a little oil and butter with the garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent. Now add your mussels, a glass of white wine and 200ml of cream. Then put the lid on the frying pan and allow to cook rapidly for around 4 to 5 minutes until the shells have opened. At this stage you can serve them straight away with some chopped parsley on to.  

Notes

You could remove the mussels into some warm serving bowls and put the pan back onto the heat. This will reduce the cream and wine sauce and thicken it a little. This makes the sauce coat the mussels more and intensifies the flavour some more. You could also add a teaspoon of French mustard to the sauce to add some acidity

All you need to decide is what to soak up all that delicious broth with. Will it be some classic French fries or make some artisan bread, I suppose you could do both. A simple recipe especially if you are just cooking for one.
