Prepared in 10 minutes or less.


¾ cup dry white wine
¾ cup heavy cream
1 medium shallot, peeled and thinly sliced
8 sprigs fresh thyme
1 Tbs fresh ground pepper
1 medium leek, rinsed very well and thinly sliced. Use white and light-green parts only
6 lbs fresh mussels, thoroughly rinsed
1 small bunch fresh chives, cut into ½-inch sticks


In a large heavy-bottomed pot over high heat, bring the white wine, cream, shallot, fresh thyme and pepper to a boil. Add the leek and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the mussels, toss once, cover, and simmer until the mussels have opened. Add the chives, toss, and serve immediately.  A crisp Sauvignon Blanc would be divine with this dish.  Serves 4-6.
