Something a little more simple

This recipe, courtesy of Mark Bittman, is a great date night treat. Maybe not the first date, as the mussels can get a bit messy, but definitely a second or third to show her your cooking chops.


Steamed Mussles
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 medium onion, roughly sliced
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • ½ cup parsley, chopped
  • 4+ pounds large mussles, cleaned
1. In a large pot, heat oil and cook garlic and onion until onion softens.

2. Add wine, parsley, and mussels, cover pot, and turn heat to high. Steam, shaking the pot frequently, until mussels open, 8-10 minutes. Serve in bowl with crusty bread.
