Mussels with Vodka, Garlic and White Wine
Mussels. Either you love them or hate them. Which club are you in? We are in the love mussels club. This year we went on a roadtrip through Istria (Croatia) and one of our stops was The Lim bay, a place where they grow the most delicious mussels and oysters too. We were lucky enough to eat oysters directly from the sea and the freshest mussels, prepared on a traditional, local way - they were divine, truly divine. So to celebrate our trip and to celebrate those delicious little treats we made our own version: Mussels with vodka, garlic, white wine and parsley. So so so delicious. The mussels are perfectly cooked, yet still full of flavor, the sauce is incredibly tasty, light and full of sea juices. Easily prepared, fresh and delicious. Serve with fluffy white bread and enjoy.
