Heritage Recipe

Mussels in White Wine

Ingredients
1 pound mussels (in shell)
2 onions (diced)
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup white wine
Chopped fresh parsley
Olive oil
Butter/margarine

Clean and beard mussels under water. In large covered saucepan, saute onions in a mix of half butter or margarine and half oil. Add black pepper (adjust amount to taste, but this dish is especially good if peppery) and wine. Bring to a boil, add mussels, and cook, covered, until shells open (a few minutes should suffice; certainly no more than 15!) Serve in soup bowls, sprinkled with fresh parsley on top.

NOTE: I learned this one from a young Parisian doctor who came with his wife to visit me briefly in Sevilla, Spain in 1974 enroute to Morocco, where he was going to do the equivalent of Peace Corps work in lieu of military service. His recipe has stayed with me ever since and has been raved about at more Super Bowl and other parties than I can remember.
