The easy and traditional recipe for delicious marinière mussels!

Today I offer you a small, easy and very classic recipe: marinated mussels! It’s a “basic” but many of you have asked me for more recipes of this style, just to have them on hand;) Small, simple and tasty dishes, to cook with friends or family 🙂

By the way, don’t hesitate to send me a quick note via the contact form or my social networks if you have any specific recipe requests;) I don’t always think of taking pictures of the simpler recipes to put them on the blog 🙂
