Fragrant, simple and easy recipe for mussels. Add clams for more flavor and maybe a glass of wine too.
2 pounds of mussels (wash and clean)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
1 small bunch of parsley (coarsely chopped)
salt to taste
1. Heat olive oil in a large pan, cook garlic over medium-high for 1 minute.
2. Put the mussels in the pan, cover, and cook over medium heat until all the shells have open about 8 minutes. Discard any that do not open.
3. Add parsley to the pan and cook for another minute. Plate and serve immediately.
