Garlicky MusselsCuisinart Original Recipe
If you are entertaining, the Skillet can easily handle a double batch of this recipe.
2 tablespoons good quality unsalted butter
3 tablespoons good quality extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for serving
3 small shallots, thinly sliced
6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
4 sprigs fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken broth, reduced-sodium
2 pounds mussels, scrubbed, with beards removed
1. Preheat the Cuisinart® GreenGourmet® Electric 14-inch Skillet to 300°F.
2. Add butter and olive oil to Skillet. When butter melts add shallots, garlic, celery, thyme, and pepper. Gently sauté vegetables until soft and fragrant.
3. Add wine and broth to the Skillet and turn heat to 350°F. When liquid comes to a boil, add the mussels and place lid on the Skillet. Steam until all mussels have opened, about 5 minutes. Discard any mussels that have not opened.
4. Transfer to shallow soup bowls, top with extra virgin olive oil and serve with crusty bread to sop up the broth.
