Mussels In White Wine

Mussels In White Wine


  • 800 g mussels
  • 150 g shrimp
  • 200 g onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 400 ml white wine
  • 1 lemon
  • salt
  • pepper
  • parsley


Place the mussels in the sink under running water. Pick up each mussel and check that it’s firmly closed. Discard any mussels that are open – that’s very important. Scrub each mussel clean with a stiff brush to get rid of any barnacles, pulling off the hairy ‘beard’ that sticks out from the shell, if it has one.
In a deeper frying pan put chopped onion and garlic and fry on olive oil. Add mussels and shrimp, then pour white wine. Cook them for six or seven minutes, occasionally shaking the dish, in order to open the shells. Spice with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Before serving add chopped parsley. You can serve this traditional dish with blanched spinach, chard or broccoli.
