Grilled Mussels with Herbed Butter
You won’t believe how easy it is to grill mussels, in fact, you might never cook them over the stove again. Simply toss them in a large cast iron pan with some herbs, butter and wine and voila, they’re ready to serve in just a few minutes, hot off the grill.
  1. Heat a large cast iron pan on the grill on medium high heat.
  2. Add 3 tbs butter, and sauté garlic, shallots and chilis until soft, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the clean mussels, wine and a small handful of parsley and thyme.
  4. Toss the mussels and close the grill for about 3-5 minutes or until all the mussels have opened.
  5. Remove any unopened mussels and divide them up into bowls.
  6. Place the remaining 2 tbs of butter into the liquid, season with salt and pepper if necessary, and reduce for about 1-2 minutes.
  7. Pour sauce over the mussels and add a handful of fresh parsley and thyme.
  8. Serve with grilled French bread.
