Moules à la Marinière Recipe

Moules à la Marinière
Moules à la Marinière pictures (2 of 3)


I came all the way to south of France to eat these–Moules à la Marinière, or French/Belgium-style mussels cooked with white wine, onions, and parsley. Not that I can’t get mussels in California, but eating these mussels right here in a Mediterranean coastal town just adds to the authenticity and–most importantly–the flavors.

While I am here, feed me more pots or pails or buckets of Moules à la Marinière, please…

Note: Pictured above is 1 kg of pure mussel goodness…I think I might not want to go back.

    You bring me memories of the mussel-pot I had in Brussels. Cooked almost the same way and absolutely heavenly.

    Enjoy your trip :D
    I hope to visit south of France one day, really.
