Specialty Recipe

Captain Mike's Steamed Mussels

This is quick, easy and fun. Perfect for a gathering of about 8 friends on a sunny afternoon. - Capn. Mike

Ingredients
6 pounds fresh mussels (Penn Cove's are the best)
1 whole Walla Walla sweet onion
1 cup olive oil
1 head garlic
6 shakes red wine vinegar
Tabasco pepper sauce to taste
Oregano to taste
Basil to taste
1/2 stick butter
Pepper to taste
1 bottle inexpensive white wine

OK, here we go. Into a large pot or wok, add the oil, garlic, and onion, all minced. Get it hot and add the spices. When it's real hot, add the mussels and walk them around until the mussels just begin to open. Now you can pour in most of the wine (save enough for a glass for yourself), vinegar, and butter. Put the lid on and steam those little critters for about 3 to 4 minutes. When they are fully opened, you are ready to serve into bowls (so you can include some broth with each serving). You'll want some slightly crisp garlic bread to soak up the broth. That's the way we do it.

Note from the Editor: Some people don't know what a Walla Walla onion is, can't seem to find them in the midwest. These onions, grown in Washington, are probably some of the best in the world ... big, juicy, and sweet white onions.
