How To Make Oven-Steamed Mussels with Garlic and White Wine
Bring some elegance to the dinner table with these oven-steamed mussels cooked in a buttery white wine broth with garlic, thyme, and bay leaves.
Set an oven rack in the lowest position and preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
Set a large roasting pan on the stovetop over medium heat. Add the oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant. Do not brown.
Add the wine, thyme, and bay leaves and boil until slightly reduced.
Stir in the salt and mussels. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil (remember the edges of the pan will be hot) and transfer to the oven.
Roast for 15 minutes until the majority of the mussels have opened.
Remove the pan from the oven. Discard any unopened mussels. Using a wooden spoon, push the mussels to the edges of the pan.
Add the butter to the center and stir until melted. Discard the thyme sprigs and bay leaves and stir in the parsley.
Spoon the mussels and wine broth into bowls and serve with bread.
