A simple recipe for a typical mussel recipe from the Breton coast in France. Creme fraiche is available in many supermarkets, but if you cannot find it, a mixture of sour cream and Neufchatel cheese will also work. Serve with a dry white wine.
This was the first time I cooked or ate mussels and it was great!!...Even my (initially skeptical)family loved it a lot!! - 30 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is the best mussels I have ever tasted!! Very simple ingredients, but very tasteful. The only change I did was using just 1 stalk of celery, 250 ml of wine mixed with bacardi rum and no parsley just more thyme. Garlic bread is great aside this dish. This was a tip from a friend, and as I said: It´s simply the best!! - 21 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent recipe. Used sour cream and cream cheese instead. - 02 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
