Mussels in Beer
- 2 lbs Confederation Cove mussels
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1-2 shallots, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
- 1 bottle of beer
- 2-3 tbsp finely chopped, parsley for garnish
Heat a large, lidded saucepan and add the olive oil. Add the shallots and garlic and cook for one minute. Add the mussels and pour in the beer. Mix together, turn up the heat and put the lid on. Cook, shaking the pan every now and again until all the mussels have opened and are cooked. Remove any mussels that remain closed. Spoon into serving bowls with the juices, sprinkle with parsley and serve with rustic bread.
