We love Giada! We served this at a dinner party for four, we each tasted one and threw the rest away. item not reviewed by moderator and published
but, not filling. Bought 1 1/2 pounds mussels for me, for main course. Got tired of eating them, even before they were finished. Even with bread, not filling. Will use the leftovers tomorrow over pasta. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The simplest and best tasting! Has definite Spanish flavors because of the cilantro. After your done with mussels..use the broth and add some olive olive to make yourself a quick pasta. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was amazed, it was quick and easy. Great for picknicks and camping, easy clean up. the sauce was okay, spanish flavors. with a few tweeks, they will be great. tip: if you put the lid on the grill, the mussels will open up faster. with out it, it takes double time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was foolproof. The results were excellent with hardly any effort at all. The 2nd time I prepared it, I used shallots instead of onion, basil instead of cilantro, and 2 ounces of wine and the variation was just as well received by guests. Don't forget to serve with crusty bread to soak up the wonderful broth! item not reviewed by moderator and published
