Mussels With Roquefort Sauce
“Many people are afraid to attempt to cook mussels, they think it's difficult to cook, but it's
not the case. In fact, the hardest part is the washing. Place them in cold water (they should
close, if they don't you should throw them away). Scrub any dirt off the surface of the
mussels and remove the beard. Then it will take minutes to cook!” Cherine
Ingredients (serves 4):
1.5 kilos mussels
2 onions, finely sliced
1 cup dry white wine

4 ½ oz (125 g) Roquefort, chunked
2 tbsp salted butter
2 tbsp chopped parsley
salt and pepper
Wash mussels in cold water, pulling away beards and scraping off barnacles if there are
Rinse again and swish around in lots of cold water.
