soooo good. just spicy enough, yet not too spicy. If you make the sauce ahead of time and refridgerate over night, the flavors become 5 times more rich and delish! then just heat up and add the mussels! all the mussels were gone in less than 5 minutes and everyone was raving.
I used 4 1/2 lb of mussels, and they just barely fit in the amount of sauce. will use 4lb next time.
This recipe tastes A LOT like the Chicken Milano from this site. The only difference is the fresh tomatoes rather than sun dried tomatoes. I didn't care for that recipe, I think it was the sun dried tomatoes. I followed the recipe only adding shrimp along with the mussels. It was all right, but I won't make it again.
Wicked good! Yes, I said it! We halved it and I was a whimp about putting 1/2 of each pepper, but next time I won't be a whimp. Make sure you have lots of bread for sopping!!! THANK YOU!
I made this recipe for Valentine's Day and both me & my husband loved it. I didn't have the red chili pepper so I used a couple of pinches of red pepper flakes instead. It was perfect. Will make again - thanks for the recipe.
I made this recipe for one of the seven fishes on Christmas Eve. Came out very good! I made 15 pounds of Mussels and adjusted the recipe accordingly. I made the "broth" in the morning, then that night I brought it to a boil and threw in the mussels. Served on it's own,with bread for dunking. Wish I had a picture of my Dad and Uncles at the table with this huge bowl of Mussels. They were just eating away! Nobody gave up their seat for nieces or nephews!! Flavor and ease is part of a 5 star rating, but you also have to factor in how other people like it..and when there is NO leftovers that's an automatic 5!!
I used the base recipe...green onion instead of shallots, pure beef drippings, chili pepper flakes and heavy cream.
Served mussels with filet mignon...what a combination.
I like mussels!
I also found that just 4 lbs. worked out great. DEFINITELY making these delicious mussels again. Made no changes, doesn't need any.
