The Moules Marinières Recipe at Only €2.08 per Person.

Easy to cook and very economical, you don't always think of serving on our tables a dish of mussels.

However, marinière mussels are ideal for a light and tasty meal!

Ingredients for 4 People

- 2 shallots

- 1 large glass of dry white wine

- 1/2 bunch of flat-leaf parsley

- Pepper

In the kitchen

Preparation:20 min - Cooking:20 min

1. I wash and scrape my mussels with a knife under running cold water.

2. I peel and chop my shallots and chop my parsley.

3. In a large casserole, I melt my butter over high heat and add my shallots, my parsley and my white wine.

4. I pour my mussels into my casserole dish and cook, covered, for 6 or 7 minutes, still on high heat. I mix 2 or 3 times during cooking so that all the mussels open.

5. As soon as the mussels open widely, I remove my casserole dish from the heat and arrange my mussels in soup plates and sprinkle them with their cooking juices.

I accompany with the traditional plate of fries!

Bonus Tip

For even more flavor, I add 2 tablespoons of fresh cream to my cooking juices before pouring it over my molds.

Consume your mussels preferably from the day of purchase. Otherwise, keep them (no more than 2 days) in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator inside a container covered with a damp cloth.
