Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Spoonacular is not responsible for any adverse effects or damages that occur because of your use of the website or any information it provides (e.g. after cooking/consuming a recipe on spoonacular.com or on any of the sites we link to, after reading information from articles or shared via social media, etc.)

One serving contains 419 calories, 4g of protein, and 30g of fat. 1 person has made this recipe and would make it again.

From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 45 minutes. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 25%. This score is rather bad. Try Mussels A La Mariniere (steamed Mussels), Mussels For One (or Two), and Mussels for similar recipes.

Shellfish on the menu? Try pairing with Chardonnay, Muscadet, and Riesling. Buttery chardonnay is great for scallops, shrimp, crab, and lobster, while muscadet is a classic pick for mussels, oysters, and clams. If you've got some spice in your shellfish, a semi-dry riesling can balance out the heat. The Hanna Chardonnay with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 20 dollars per bottle.

Hanna Chardonnay

With a color of brilliant honey and golden straw, this wine brings aromas of grilled peach, pear pie, with caramel, plantain,Pineapple. On the palate, fresh slice apple with pie crust, caramel, pear pie, grilled peach, toast and banana.

Instructions

  1. Debeard and scrub the mussels.
  2. Heat a large saute pan, place the oil in the pan, and saute the garlic and onions until soft. Deglaze the pan with the white wine over medium-high heat, add the mustard and stir to combine.
  3. Place the mussels, cream, and clam juice in the pan. Cover with a second pan (inverted) to create a steamer. Lower the heat slightly and steam for 5 minutes. The mussels are done when the shells open and the mussels are firm.
  4. Heap the mussels in a large bowl and pour the broth over them. Serve with crusty bread for dipping.
  5. This recipe yields 2 servings.
  6. Comments: The emphasis on gourmet cooking at the Vermont Inn is obvious.
  7. For a lighter version, skim milk may be used in place of the heavy cream.
