Use the microwave to make this delicious recipe.

Mussels Mariners


1/4 cup dry white wine
  Pinch saffron threads
2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
1 small fennel bulb (approx. 10oz), trimmed and bulb and prongs finely diced
1 large tomato, finely diced
2 pounds mussels, beards removed and scrubbed
2 tablespoons cream
  Freshly ground black pepper
  Crusty bread, to serve

Cooking Instructions

Combine wine, saffron, garlic, fennel bulb and tomato in a 4 quart microwave-safe bowl or deep casserole dish. Cover with a vented microwave safe lid or vented microwave-safe plastic wrap.

Select 100% power and dial up 6 minutes and press START button.

Remove from microwave and add mussels; cover tightly with lid or 2 layers of plastic wrap. Select 70% for 8 minutes and press START button. All mussels should have opened and cooked through.

Stir in cream and chopped fennel prongs into mussel. Season with freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately with crusty bread. Makes 4 servings.

Note: Some mussels may not open, pry open over a sink and smell mussel meat. If mussel does not smell bad then it is fine to eat. If mussels have a pungent odor, then discard.
