For the Love of Food: Mussels with Garlic and White Wine

Posted on by Alycia

After pondering over the perfect corny “muscles” versus “mussels” joke, I gave up and decided to leave it to the pro’s. Here’s  a gem, from Paleoblocks:

Fry up a few pieces of bacon ( about 4 slices). If you choose to omit the bacon altogether in this recipe – no problem  – its still delicious without it. But, as you know, the Golden Rules says, “Eat your bacon at every meal”.  Or something like that.

Saute about 1/4 white onion (cut into strips) and 4-5 cloves of garlic (thinly sliced) in 1T of butter. Once the onion turns translucent, add about 1 cup of dry white wine and add 1lb of mussels to the pan. We found these pre-steamed ones for $5/lb at Whole Foods.

Cook the mussels for about 5 minutes or so and sprinkle with a little black pepper and garnish with fresh parsley, or sprinkle on some italian seasonsings to taste. Add the bacon and remove the pan from the heat. Pour the ingredients into a bowl. Enjoy with friends!
