<i>Moules au Vin Blanc</i> (Belgian Mussels)
  Moules au Vin Blanc, or Mussels with white wine, is a famous dish from Belgium. Mussel season starts from summer and ends at Easter. Enjoy this recipe with French fries (pomme frites) or sliced baguette.

Ingredients (serves 2):  

  • 2 lbs. mussels
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 cloves medium shallots, sliced
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine 
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
1

Clean the mussels thoroughly, remove the beards and discard any that do not close when tapped.

 

2

Melt the butter in your Gourmet d'Expert® Electric Skillet (EP-RAC50) and add the shallots and pepper. Cook until the shallots have softened. Make sure to use a wooden or silicon spoon/spatula so you don’t scratch the pan.

3

Add the mussels, wine, and half the parsley. Do not stir the mussels, as they may scratch the pan. Bring to a boil, then place the lid on the pan and steam the mussels for about three minutes or until most of the mussels open.

4

Discard any unopened mussels.

5

Sprinkle the remaining parsley and serve.
