Moules Mariniere

Moules Mariniere
This week in French Friday's With Dorie our assignment was mussels.  Fresh mussels are a shell fish the whole family enjoys.  We are not much of a fish eating family.  In Dorie's version, they are cooked in white wine with some chopped onion, shallots, garlic, thyme, parsley, a bay leaf and lemon zest.  Cook until the mussels are steamed open.  That's it - you have a fantastic dinner that is ready in minutes and requires little effort to prepare.  And did I mention, these mussels are delicious:)


This recipe can be found on pages 312-313 in "Around My French Table."
