White Wine Mussels

  • Author: Heirloomed Collection


This seafood dish is such a quick and easy meal that I know a lot of people can be intimidated by actually making themselves at home. Fear not, this recipe is easy AND delicious.


  • 3 pounds mussels, scrubbed
  • 4 Tbsp Butter (+ extra for buttering baguette slices)
  • 3 green onions, finely sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 /1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste


  1. To begin, wash mussels under cold water. Toss the ones that remain open into the trash.
  2. In a large pot (or dutch oven) heat the butter over medium heat until melted, then increase heat to high, adding green onions, garlic and thyme. Sautee for 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add mussels to the butter mixture and cover, steaming for 6-8 minutes or until mussels open.
  4. Remove thyme sprigs and pour in the cream, white wine, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix all ingredients together gently.
  5. Slice the baguette and top with a small amount of butter. Arrange bread on a pan and bake at 375 on the top rack for 5 minutes or until bread is lightly browned. Enjoy the browned bread with the mussels.
