Mussels in White Wine Sauce (Moules Marinières) with French Fries a favorite ‘go to’ meal for me here and in France. In France, we always wait until the beginning of June when the bouchots, a small variety of mussels, come in.
Unfortunately, we don’t have bouchots here in the USA, but all is not lost…especially since you don’t have to wait until June. I was shopping Costco last week (January) and found beautiful PEI (Prince Edward Island) mussels from Canada. They weren’t too big…in fact, very close to the size of the bouchots…and very fresh. One of the bags from Costco will feed 4-5 reasonable people. Reasonable? Who is reasonable when it comes to mussels?
