OH MY. This is one of the best things I have ever made. I love trying out new ideas for dinner, and normally (maybe because I'm in the Midwest!) I don't do too many recipes with seafood. My husband and I love mussels however, and noticed they were on sale in our local deli today. ($3.69 for 2.5lbs!) This dish sounded like what I was looking for, because we love the buttery/wine type sauce in these types of dishes. I'm always worried I'm not adding enough flavor to my dishes, but this turned out absolutely delicious and full of flavor. I modified the following: 1 1/2 cups chardonnay, 3-4 T butter, half a sliced white onion instead of green onions, nixed the tomatoes, added a chicken bullion cube, forgot the salt and pepper (which was fine, maybe because of the bullion). It was SO flavorful. I had some homemade baguette-type bread and sliced up 4 small pieces each, which I placed around the edges of our plates - it was amazing to sop up the sauce with the bread. I wasn't sure how high the burner was supposed to be while cooking the mussels, so I left it about medium heat and 10 minutes was perfect. This is a definite keeper and I can't WAIT to make it for guests.
