While planning the dinners I would prepare for this week, I stumbled across Prince Edward Island Mussels on Fresh Direct's site. The thought of preparing shell fish makes me a wee bit nervous, but I decided to give it a go.
...and it was a smashing success!
2lbs Mussels (live and rinsed)
1 Cup White Wine
4 shoots scallion, chopped
3 tbsp unsalted butter
5 leaves sage
1 tbsp garlic, chopped
Brown sage, butter, garlic
Add mussels, wine, toss and cover for ten minutes.
Six thin slices of whole wheat baguette
Painted with extra virgin olive oil and top with chopped byzantine olives and ripe tomatoes. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
Green beans w/ Chorizo
1/2 lb fresh green beans, ends cut off
3 chorizo sausages, sliced
1 tsp cayenne
Saute covered on medium heat for 12 minutes, or until green beans are tender.
The mussels were too much for two (and Pug), but I would love to have a few friends over and prepare them again!
