Moules Mariniere

Happy Friday!  This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe is a quick-to-make dish called Moules Marinière, or fisherman’s mussels.

The mussels are steamed in a simple wine sauce:  first onion, shallot, and garlic are sauteed in olive oil, then simmered with white wine, thyme, parsley, and a bay leaf.  The mussels cook for less than 5 minutes, then they are ready to eat.  Have some bread on hand to sop up the tasty juices!

Since I am the only one in my house who will eat mussels, I made this for a lunchtime treat.  While I enjoyed these very much, I found myself longing for the super-fresh mussels that can be found in my hometown of Seattle.  I am sure they would have made a good dish even better!
