Steamed Mussels with Fennel, Tomatoes, Ouzo, and Cream Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 4)
Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
If you are a mussel fan you will love this dish, it's also a great dish to impress your guests. Looks and tastes complicated, but it really isn't :). I would suggest making sure that when you add the fennel it is very thinly sliced, and after dropping the fennel into the pan, test it with a fork and don't add the other ingredients until the fennel has become a bit soft. Muscles are delicate and the sauce should be too so as to complement them with a delicate sauce as well. The first time I made this the fennel was still as crispy and I had realized my mistake. The second time I let the fennel cook a bit and all around it came out spectacular. A+

We couldn't finish the mussels we made in one night (we had steaks with them!) so we saved them in the fridge and re-heated them the next day with some additional cream. Still delicious....

This is a great recipe!! We didn't have any Ouzo to put in but, I don't think it could have been any better. Will make this again. Thanks for the recipe.

This was my first attempt at preparing mussels, and they came out great. I love the broth! Didn't use the ouzo, though. I think the anise flavor would have been a little overpowering. I just substituted more white wine, and it was excellent.

At first I was skeptical about the mix of flavours in this recipe and couldn't imagine them marrying well with mussels, but it was amazing. (I followed the recipe exactly and used the fresh live mussels). Twelve out of the twelve I served it to loved it. It deserves five stars. Ingredients are easy to come by, it is quick to prepare, and is an easy one to impress with!

The recipe was great, easy to make and fabulous in flavor. I opted out out on the Ouzo, but it still tasted great and I've made it several times since. Happy Cooking!
