Spicy steamed mussels served with a white wine and tomato juice sauce. Perfect with lots of fresh bread.
One of my favorite all time recipes, outstanding reviews every time. I add a can of olive oil and garlic flavored diced tomatoes to make for chunkier dipping. Also I cut all the butter out as the flavor is enough on its own. I serve it with toasted baguette (brush with garlic powder and butter before putting it in the oven if you want). - 19 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great flavour with the tomatoe and clam juice cocktail. I added a can of diced tomatoes to it and will add more of the tomatoe and clam juice, the hubby likes to soak up the juice with a baguette or sour dough. I didn't realize how easy it would be to make. Might even add some cayenne pepper to give it a little bite. Very good recipe. - 27 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is absolutely amazing. The mussels were easy and quick to prepare . . .and tasted delicious. I used Clamato and added a bit more clam juice, and the mussels just sucked up all the flavors. The dipping sauce created at the end was a wonderful touch. I suggest using New Zealand mussels. - 27 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
