Several years back on one of our trips to Maine we had a dish of mussels in the north end of Boston that knocked our socks off. Mrs KC went to work putting together her analysis of that recipe and upon returning home altered it to incorporate some additions that we thought would enhance it. So for those of you that like to sop up goodness with griddled dipping bread here is one of our true delights. Enjoy!

2lbs of coldwater mussels soaked and debearded. Mussels are soaked in salt water in 15 min intervals 3 times....Water 1/3 cup of salt...soak and drain...repeat.


Give k.c.hawg the right motivation and he will gladly chop for food and drink!


White onion, mushrooms, cilantro, stewed tomatoes, capers, black olives, sauterne, and vermouth.


Add about a tbs of minced garlic.


Some good Thyme


Several Bay Leaves


Add the stewed tomatoes, a cup of v-8 juice, mushrooms, black olives, capers, approx 3ozs of vermouth and 3 ozs of sauterne.


Top with fresh chopped cilantro


Simmer the sauce for approx 30 min and bring to a boil in the last moment before adding the mussels


Cover with a lid and allow sauce to continue at a slight boil while mussels steam. Check after 5 min....all mussels should be open. any mussel that does not open should be discarded.


Serve with griddled garlic bread and a nice white wine or a good cold beer. And get to sopping.......the mussels are great but plowing through that sauce with garlic bread is out of this world! A "Big Thank You" to Mrs KC for one of my favorite dishes for Valentines!
