Steamed Mussels With White Wine, Garlic And Parsley
- 3 pounds black mussels
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons roughly-chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tablespoon butter
Wash mussels thoroughly and remove the beards or (the stringlike appendages sticking out from the shells), by gripping them with a dry kitchen towel and yanking straight out.
Mix wine, garlic, parsley and butter in a 5-quart pot with a tight-fitting lid. Bring to a quick simmer, add the mussels and cover tightly. Steam for 10 minutes, or until shells are open, discard any unopened mussels. Divide mussels and broth in four soup bowls.
