|Steamed Mussels in Wine Broth|
We usually lay low for New Year’s and this year is no exception. Many snacks and appetizers will be our on our list as well as these mussels steamed in a wine broth. Cooked right; these beauties are both succulent and delicious. My husband cooks all fish and grills all meat as I tend to cook them to death. These were steamed in a large covered stockpot with garlic, shallots, white wine and chicken broth for 6 minutes. When the lid was removed the amazing aroma almost knocked us off our feet.
Serve steamed mussels with hot garlic bread and a nice green salad and you will have a delicious, sophisticated meal, or serve as an appetizer for your next party. Both ways are special enough to start the New Year with.
Happy New Year’s!
