Mussels

I have been dying to make mussels for months now so I finally just got some! I have a recipe for Coconut Curry Mussels but I also wanted to try a wine-based broth. I sauteed leeks in some olive oil with salt and pepper. Add in the mussels, wine, garlic, lemon juice and parsley.  Cover and steam for 8 minutes. Serve in bowls with nice, crusty whole grain bread and gremolata. So lovely. And surprisingly easy. Maybe I can bribe my parents to visit with mussels???

Gremolata:
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
zest from 1 lemon
1 clove garlic, minced
Mussels:
1 lb. mussels
2 leeks, sliced thin
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cups white wine (I used the tasters chard, sorry!)
1 Tbsp garlic, minced
3/4 cup parsley, rough chopped
Juice from 1 lemon

    I used to be a server at Olive Garden way back in the day. As part of our training, we had to try everything on the menu, including mussels. I thought I'd HATE them, but surprise! I really liked them.

    Unfortunately, Ryan does not share a like of mussels, so it's like a once a year thing.
