Quick BBQ Sauce Mussels
Number of Servings: 4-6
5 lb (2.2 kg) fresh PEI Mussels
1 Tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
1 onion, roughly chopped
1/2 cup (125 mL) beer
1/2 cup (125 mL) barbecue sauce
- Rinse fresh PEI Mussels under tap water. Tap any mussels that are still open and discard any that do not close after being tapped and rinsed. Set aside.
- In a large pot, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Fry the onion until softened, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add the beer and mussels. Pour the barbecue on top of the mussels and cover with a lid. Turn the heat to high and cook until steam pours out from under the lid and the shells are open, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for about 1 minute. Discard any mussels that do not open.
- Stir mussels well to coat with sauce and serve. Don't forget some bread to dip in the broth.
