Back to the Seafood Index

See the note on preparing clams and mussels.

Cook the shallots in butter in a large pot, then add the mussels and wine, cover the pot, and simmer 4–5 minutes till the mussels open. Discard any that do not.

Serve at once with crusty French or Italian bread, a salad, and the rest of the bottle of wine.
