Mussel in White Wine and Garlic

recipe taken from martha stewart

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dry white wine
  • 4 large shallots, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 pounds live mussels
  • 1/3 cup mixed fresh herbs, such as flat-leaf parsley, chervil, or basil, chopped
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces

Directions

  1. Rinse and scrub mussels under cold running water. Using your fingers or a paring knife, remove beards (strings that hang from the mussels’ shells), and discard.
  2. In a large stockpot set over medium heat, combine wine, shallots, garlic, and salt. Simmer 5 minutes. Add mussels.
  3. Cover, and increase heat to high. Cook until all mussels are open, about 5 minutes. Stir in herbs and butter. Remove from heat. Divide mussels and broth among four bowls. Serve immediately.
