Steam Mussels in White Wine

I had no idea how easy it was to make steamed mussels with white wine. Easy and delicious! A winning combination.


  • 4 pounds Fresh Mussels
  • 1/2 cup White Wine
  • 2 cloves Garlic - thinly sliced, not chopped or minced
  • 1/4 cup Shallots (or onions) - chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper - to taste
  • 4 tbsp Butter - unsalted
  • 2 tbsp Parsley - chopped
  • Fresh lemon juice - to taste 


  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Sort, scrub, and de-beard the mussels. Rinse with cold water.
  3. Combine the wine, garlic, shallots, and black pepper in a wide stock pot or soup pot and bring to a boil over high heat.
  4. Add the mussels and cover the pan with a tightly fitting lid. Lower heat to medium-high and cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until most of the mussels have opened. Don't overcook, or the mussels can become rubbery.
  5. Stir in the butter and parsley and stir until the butter melts into the liquid.
  6. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
  7. Serve in large bowls with the cooking liquid, along with plenty of crusty bread for soaking up the fragrant sauce. A separate bowl for the empty shells will also come in handy.
