White Wine Steamed Mussels

  • Seafood Broth
    • 4 cups Water
    • 3 cloves Garlic; crushed
    • 1 cup Onion; quartered
    • 2 pounds Seafood “leftovers” (shrimp & crab shells, fish heads, skins & bones)
    • 2 Bay Leaves
    • 2 sprigs fresh Thyme
    • 1 Tablespoon Whole Peppercorns
    • 2 Tablespoons Salt
    • 1/2 cup White Cooking Wine
  • Mussels
    • 2 pounds fresh Mussels
    • 4 cups Seafood Broth
    • 4 cloves Garlic; minced
    • 1/2 Tablespoon Red Pepper Flakes
    • 1/4 cup fresh Parsley; chopped
    • 1/4 cup fresh Basil; chopped
    • 2 Tablespoons Green Onion; diced
    • 1/2 cup White Cooking Wine
    • Salt to taste
  1. Combine all of the seafood broth ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, then cover and simmer for 6 hours.
  2. Pour the broth through a strainer into a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the remaining ingredients, cover and steam for 4 minutes. Check the mussels and push the unopened ones to the bottom. Cover and cook an addition 3 minutes. Check again and discard any mussels that didn’t open.
  3. Stir briefly, then serve over cooked pasta with a squeeze of lemon juice and toasted garlic bread.
  4. Enjoy!
