Tapas Thursdays: Broiled Mussels with Prosciutto

The fun of Tapas Thursdays continues! Publix had their frozen mussels on sale this week, so choosing this week's Tapas was easy peasy.

I added a little more prosciutto than called for in the recipe because I adore prosciutto! Your mileage may vary.  By the time the mussels had steamed open, the topping was ready to go.  VERY quick weeknight meal and also extremely filling.

1 lb. small black mussels
2 cups water
4 T. butter, softened
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 scallions, finely chopped (or 2 T. finely chopped chives)

Scrub mussels and remove beards.  Bring the water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the mussels, cover and boil for about 3 minutes or until mussels open. Discard any mussels that don't open.

Drain mussels and discard liquid. Break open shells; discard top shell.

Loosen mussels from shells with a spoon. Return mussels to shells; place in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Preheat broiler.

Combine the butter, prosciutto, garlic, and scallion in small bowl.

Divide butter mixture evenly over mussels. Broil for about 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve immediately.

Do you think we enjoyed them!?!

  1. I've had oysters, but not mussels. Also, don't recall every having prosciutto either. I'd try it though.
