Author: Derek Wolf
3lbsof Fresh Musselscleaned and de-bearded
2tspof Red Pepper Flakes
½cupof White Wine
¼cupof Shaved Parmesan
Chopped Parsleyfor garnish
Wedged Lemonsfor garnish
Preheat your fire to a medium-high temperature of 375F. Add your skillet with butter 2 minutes before cooking to heat up.
Add in your chopped garlic to brown for 1 minute on the skillet. Next, add the red pepper flakes and lemon juice to heat up for another minute. Finally, add your white wine and let cook for 2 minutes.
Once all that is mixed together, add in the mussels. Mix the mussels with the sauce and cook for about 2 minutes until they begin to start opening up. Once about 75% have opened, turn them all so that the opening is facing up. Sprinkle your parmesan cheese all over the mussels. Cover in tin foil with some coals on top to caramelize the cheese. Cook for 1 minute and then pull off.
Serve the mussels in the skillet or on a plate garnished with parsley, lemon wedges and dipping in the parmesan sauce. Cheers!
