Moules Mariniere Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

1.75 kg/4 lb fresh mussels, scrubbed and bearded
1 sprig of parsley
1 sprig of thyme
2 shallots, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
150 ml/0.25 pt white wine

Method :

Wash the mussels in several changes of water and discard any that are open and do not close when sharply tapped. Put them in a large saucepan with the parsley, thyme and shallots and pepper to taste. Add the wine, bring to the boil, stir well, cover and heat over a high heat for a few minutes just until the mussels open. Discard any that remain closed. Transfer the mussels to a warmed serving dish and keep them warm. Boil the liquor until reduced by half, then stir in the parsley, butter or margarine and garlic. When the butter has melted, pour over the mussels and serve hot with chips.
