Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 leek, green tops removed, thinly sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 3 1/2 pounds black mussels, scrubbed and de-bearded
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 4 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Crusty bread

Directions

Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Add in the leeks and celery, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 to 7 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Add the garlic and continue cooking, while stirring, for 1 minute more. 

Drop in the mussels and stir the ingredients together gently until combined. Add the wine and thyme sprigs, cover the pan and simmer for 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in the cream, cover and simmer for another 5 minutes or until the mussels open.

Serve with lots of crusty bread to soak up the sauce.

Cook's Note

Discard any mussels that haven't opened in that time.
