Beer Steamed Mussels Recipe

Serves: 4-5 people | Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 onion, finely diced
2 1/2 lbs – 3 lbs mussels, bearded and scrubbed
12 fluid oz beer
A bunch Italian (flat-leaf) parsley leaves, coarsely chopped
Salt, to taste
Lemon or lime wedges

Method:

Rinse the bearded and scrubbed mussels thoroughly. Drain the water dry.

Heat up a deep skillet or a pot with the melted butter/olive oil on medium heat. Saute the garlic and onion until you start smelling the aroma, but not browned. Add the mussels into the skillet/pot and stir to combine with the garlic and onion. Pour in the beer and cover the skillet and pot, for a few minutes, or until the mussels are open and cooked. Stir in the chopped parsley and add salt to taste. Serve immediately with a squeeze of lemon or lime, if you like.

Cook’s Note:

The beer broth with the briny and sweet flavor of mussels is absolutely delicious. “Drink” the juice or sop up with garlic bread.
