Italian Easy Baked Mussels Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 dozen mussels, allow only 10 per person if they are very large
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Small bunch of parsley
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Fine fresh breadcrumbs
How to cook Italian Easy Baked Mussels:
  • Rinse the mussels throughly under cold running water. Scrub vigorously with a stiff brush to remove beards and barnacles. Discard any that are open.
  • With a short, sharp knife open and discard one half of each shell. (Reserve any liquor or juice produced during preparation and pass through a fine sieve; mix it in a small bowl with the vinegar, 6 tablespoons olive oil, the lemon juice, and finely chopped parsley; season with salt and pepper and set aside.)
  • Place the mussels on the half shell in a single layer in one or more large, shallow ovenproof dishes. Sprinkle with the prepared mixture, followed by more oil mixed with the peeled and minced garlic.
  • Cover each shell with a generous sprinkling of breadcrumbs. Bake in the oven at 400 - 450°F for about 15 minutes.
  • Serve the baked mussels very hot straight from the dish.
