Steamed Mussels With Garlic And Parsley Recipe

  1. Melt butter over medium heat in a large shallow skillet. Add shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook 2-3 minutes or until the garlic is fragrant and shallots begin to soften.
  2. Add wine and increase the heat to a medium-high to bring to a simmer.
  3. Add mussels, cover with a lid, and let the mussels steam for 5-7 minutes or until they have opened up.
  4. Add juice of one lemon, give the mussels a good stir, and cook for 1-2 minutes longer, uncovered. Transfer the mussels to a serving bowl, along with cooking liquid. Discard any mussels that are still closed.
  5. Sprinkle with parsley, salt, to taste, and garnish with additional lemon wedges. Serve with crusty bread slices, if desired.
