Beer Steamed Mussels
3 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 onion, finely diced
2kgs Dromana Bay Mussels
Can (375ml) of your favourite beer
Bunch Italian (flat-leaf) parsley leaves, coarsely chopped
Lemon or lime wedges
De-beard mussels and scrub thoroughly. Heat up a deep fry pan or pot with the melted butter/olive oil on medium heat. Saute the garlic and onion until you start smelling the aroma, but not browned. Let the pot cool and then add the mussels. Stir in and combine garlic and onion. Pour just enough beer to cover the base of the pan, place back on the heat and cover the pot with a lid. Let heat for three to four minutes, then stir the mussels with a spoon to distribute the heat and replace lid.
Cook until around 2/3rds of the mussels are open and turn off the heat. Leave the lid on for a further two to three minutes to allow the rest of the mussels to open.
Stir in the chopped parsley and serve immediately with a squeeze of lemon or lime.
