"A simple recipe for mussels typical mussel recipe from the Breton coast in France. Creme fraiche is available in many supermarkets, but if you cannot find it, a mixture of sour cream and Neufchatel cheese will also work. Serve with a dry white wine." — Kasienko

This is the best mussels I have ever tasted!! Very simple ingredients, but very tasteful. The only change I did was using just 1 stalk of celery, 250 ml of wine mixed with bacardi rum and no parsley just more thyme. Garlic bread is great aside this dish. This was a tip from a friend, and as I said: It´s simply the best!!
This was the first time I cooked or ate mussels and it was great!!...Even my (initially skeptical)family loved it a lot!!
Excellent recipe. Used sour cream and cream cheese instead.
This was a great recipe. The only thing I changed was using garlic butter instead of normal as it added a nice change to the flavour. TRhanks for the recipe.
Wonderful recipe. I added two cloves of garlic, minced, sautéing 1 minute before adding the mussels. I also substituted heavy cream for the crème fraiche. So easy and so delicious.
Fabulous recipe. Added a little zip with some cayenne, but otherwise just perfect. The sauce is to die for...have lots of break on handy.
So easy and simple and yet, Fantastic! I like how i got to drink the wine with the meal and paired so well! (of course) I just stuck to the recipe and did not change a thing!
Easy, simple, and good but not as great as other shellfish dishes I've had. Since it was just us 3, I only used 1 onion and 2 celery stalks. I think this dish needs garlic and maybe use heavy cream instead of creme fraiche. Overall, we had a nice dinner! Thanks
