|37 min.||5 min.||22 min.||1 hour 4 min.|
|1||Wash 1 kg mussels.||20 min.|
|2||Chop 1 onion. Tie 1 bunch parsley up into a small bundle.||8 min.|
|3||Melt 50 g butter in a large pan.
When the butter is melted, add the onions and the bunch of parsley, salt a bit (mussels juice is coming) and pepper generously, then leave to cook for 1 or 2 minutes.
|4||Pour in 500 ml dry white wine and bring to the boil.||5 min.|
|5||Tip in the mussels, stir briefly, pepper generously and cover.
Leave to cook covered for a minute or two, then remove the lid and take out all the mussels that have opened, using an araignée (spider) or a skimmer, as they are already cooked.
Repeat this operation until all the mussels are cooked.
|6||Carry on removing the mussels like this. Any that have not opened after five minutes are no good and should be discarded.
Cover the cooked mussels with a sheet of aluminium foil to keep them hot.
|7||Turn up the heat under the pan and reduce the cooking juices by half.||10 min.|
|8||Pass them through a fine sieve, leaving a little in the bottom of the pan, as this always contains some sand.||2 min.|
|9||Pour the reduced juices boiling hot over the mussels...||2 min.|
|10||...and serve immediately.|
