Moules marinières

Posted on: December 11, 2011

Moules marinières is probably one of the simplest French dishes to cook if you’re lazy or in a hurry. Start by throwing a thick slice of butter into a big pot.

Dice up an onion

Add onions to pot and turn up the heat, stirring until onions are soft, adding in some bay leaves and thyme later on

The mussels, cleaned and debearded. Chuck them into the pot, pour in a glass of wine and cover.

After about 2-3 minutes, the mussels will be ready to eat!

Serve with a side of nice rustic warm bread 😀

Excellent and simple recipe. Tastes great with Cider too!

Nothing nicer than using one of the shells to pull the muscle out of the others and slurp them down. We introduced our kids to them some years ago at a night market in the Loire Valley where we ate outdoor with what seemed to be the entire village at long benches. We had french fries and muscadet to complete this french classic. Wonderful times.

That sounds very nostalgic indeed!

sounds so simple and easy to cook!

Yup it’s really damn easy to cook!
