How to Prepare Mussels



How to Prepare Mussels

Ingredients :

2 liters mussels

4 tbsp Quaker oats

1 medium onion, finely chopped

4 stalks parsley

3-4 peppercorns

1 branch thyme

1 small bay leaf

200ml white wine

200ml water

Method :

Put the mussels, sprinkled with porridge oats, in a covered bowl to stand in a cool place overnight; this will both fatten and clean them the next day, scrub them very thoroughly, changing the water several times, and tear off their beards. Discard any that are now open. Put the closed mussels with all the other ingredients in a pan and bring slowly to the boil. Boil fast for 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and strain off the cooking liquor and reserve it. Throw away any mussels that are now closed. The mussels are now ready to use.

Mussels can be bought frozen without their shells. Frozen mussels can be boiled for 2 minutes with the ingredients specified above and then used as directed in the recipes. However, their flavor is not as good as that of fresh mussels.
