Grilled Mussels with Garlic, Butter & Lemon

Grilled Mussels with Garlic, Butter & Lemon

AuthorJulie

1 lb fresh mussels
lemon wedges or halves
olive oil, for cooking
1/4 cup butter
1 garlic clove, peeled
fresh parsley, for garnish

1

While you preheat your grill to medium-high, rinse your mussels, discarding any that are already open. Cut the lemons in thick wedges or in half crosswise and brush the cut sides with oil.

2

Scatter the mussels directly on the grill along with the lemons, cut-side down. Close the lid of the grill and cook for 5 minutes.

3

Meanwhile, heat the butter and garlic clove in a small saucepan or in a bowl in the microwave until the butter melts.

4

Remove the mussels from the grill – they should all be open; discard any that don’t. Transfer to a bowl and drizzle with the garlicky butter; toss to coat. (Alternatively, drizzle with olive oil.) Transfer to shallow bowls, scatter with parsley and serve with crusty bread and grilled lemon.
