Spicy Mussels in White Wine Sauce
|Prep time||15 minutes|
|Cook time||15 minutes|
|Total time||30 minutes|
|Meal type||Appetizer, Starter|
- 2 Pounds mussels (cleaned)
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 2 Cloves fresh garlic (finely chopped)
- 1/2 cup white onion (chopped)
- 1/2 unsalted stick butter
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 lemon (quartered)
- 3 Tablespoons cilantro (chopped)
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- 1 serrano
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/4 cup olive oil
|Note: For Fresh Live Mussels|
Clean mussels of any algae with a small brush if needed.
Scrape barnacles if needed with a small knife (careful not to cut yourself!)
Remove any "beards" present.
Discard any cracked mussel shells as they are dead.
Note: If any mussels are open, tap with finger and if they close, they are still alive and good to eat, if they do not close, discard. This means they are dead.
Set mussels aside and place in refrigerator.
Second Note: If you use frozen mussels for this dish, normally it means they have been precooked and will already mostly be open. These are good, except I will still discard any cracked shells.
Just defrost in a small pot of water for a few minutes to remove ice. Drain water and now they are ready to use.
|To make Serrano Sauce: |
Rinse serrano pepper and remove stem.
Peel garlic clove and keep whole. Add the 1/4 cup olive oil, serrano pepper and garlic clove to a blender or chopper.
Blend until coarsely chopped.
|Peel and chop onion and the other two garlic cloves.|
|In a large skillet over medium heat, add serrano sauce mixture. Stir fry for 2 minutes. |
Add onion and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes.
Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Add butter and allow to melt.
Add chicken broth and white white and allow to cook for about 10 minutes over low to medium heat.
Finally add mussels, salt and pepper to taste and stir together with a spoon to mix well. Cook for another 7 minutes. Stir again.
Sprinkle cilantro over mussels. Discard any shells that never opened.
|Serve immediately in bowls, top with juices from skillet and serve with lemon wedges. Enjoy!|
