Mussels with beurre d'escargot (Slideshow version)

Mussels with beurre d'escargot : Photo of step #26

Stage 6/6 : 5 min.

Cook in the oven for 5 or 6 minutes at the most. Above all, do not let the butter brown.

Serve piping hot.


If you don't have any paper cases, you can use half a mussel shell instead, but this is less practical as the capacity is generally a bit small.

Another more elegant solution, though rather more complicated, is to make little cases out of puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée).

And to drink?

A well-chilled muscadet or other dry white wine with a whiff of the sea.
