[ Prep Time: 5 min | Cooking Time: 5 min | Serving: 4 ]

This is a popular one-pot mussel recipe, often served with chips as moules frites. The mussels are steamed in a wonderful broth made with juices from the mussels, garlic, shallots and white wine.


  • 1 kg Mussels

  • 5 Garlic Cloves

  • 70 g Shallots

  • 200 mL White Wine

  • 30 g Unsalted Butter

  • ½ Tsp Salt

  • ½ Tsp Ground Black Pepper



1. Mince garlic cloves (5 pcs) and shallots (70 g) with a chopper.

2. Melt unsalted butter (30 g) over medium heat, add shallots and garlic and sauté until fragrant, season with salt (½ tsp) and ground black pepper (½ tsp).

3. Add white wine (200 mL), bring it to a boil and simmer over medium heat for 2 min.

4. Add mussels (1 kg), cover and simmer over high heat for 3 min.



  • Discard any mussels with broken shells or open ones that won't close when lightly squeezed.

  • Use a small sharp knife to scrape off any barnacles attached to the shells.
