Mussels Steamed with White Wine, Rosemary, and Fennel


Red pepper flakes add a nice kick of heat to this simple-yet refined dish. Be sure to serve it with lots of crusty bread to soak up the flavorful broth.

Serves 4



2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil

1 sprig rosemary, 3 to 4 inches long

1/2 tsp. fennel seed

1 small bulb fennel, trimmed, cored, and thinly sliced (about 1-1/2 cups), fronds reserved for garnish

Kosher salt

2 lb. mussels, cleaned

1/2 cup white wine

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

1 Tbs. unsalted butter


In a 12-inch skillet, warm the oil, rosemary, and fennel seed over high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the sliced fennel, season with salt, and cook until softened, about 2 minutes.

Add the mussels, wine, and red pepper flakes.

Cover and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until some of the mussels begin to open, about 3 minutes.

Uncover, add the butter, and continue to cook until all the mussels open, about 3 minutes more.

Toss to mix the ingredients.

Garnish with the fennel fronds and serve.
