Sally's Recipe Of The Week: Mussels With Garlic And Wine

Mussels with Garlic and Wine

Serves 4

Here is what you need:

2 pounds of fresh mussels, de-bearded and scrubbed

2 TBS butter

1 medium onion, chopped

2 tsp ground fennel seeds

3 to 4 cloves garlic finely chopped

1 to 2 tsp red pepper flakes

1 TBS orange zest

¾ cup white wine (or sub with chicken stock)

1 ½ cups chicken stock

½ cup heavy cream (or half and half)

Crusty bread for serving

chopped parsley for serving (optional)

Salt and pepper

Here is what you need to do:

In a large Dutch oven or saucepan melt the butter and add the onions, cooking low and slow over medium heat seasoning with salt and pepper.

Cook onions until soft, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add in the fennel, red pepper, garlic and orange zest. Stir for about a minute, until fragrant. Turn the heat up a bit and add in the wine, scraping the bottom of the pan. Let the wine bubble for a minute then add in the chicken stock and bring to a simmer, not a boil. Turn the heat down to keep it to a simmer. Add in your clean mussels and cover the pot. Steam until the mussels open up, about 4 minutes. Add the cream into the pot and gently mix in. Taste as season if needed. Serve with the crusty bread and a sprinkle of parsley if you want.
