Servings: 2 Cooking Time: 10 min
2 lb (1 kg) fresh PEI Mussels
1/2 cup (125 mL) brown ale
2 Tbsp (30 mL) honey
2 Tbsp (30 mL) grainy mustard
1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped peanuts (optional)
- Rinse fresh PEI Mussels under tap water. Tap any mussels that are still open and discard any that do not close after being tapped and rinsed. Set aside.
- In a large pot, combine the ale, honey and mustard.
- Add the mussels and cover with a lid. Turn the heat to medium-high and cook until steam pours out from under the lid and the shells are open, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for about 1 minute. Discard any mussels that do not open.
- Scoop into individual bowls and garnish with chopped peanuts (if using).
