Mussels in Wine

I love mussels. Come to think of it, I love those with shells, snails (shu-shu) cockers, clams, scallops, crab. The list goes on. I bought a pack of mussels from the supermarket and it’s real cheap. Only S$1.10! None in my family enjoy this. So this all mine! Yummy!

  • Fresh Mussels (as in not frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic.
  • 2 tablespoon white wine
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • A pinch of salt.
How to do it:
  1. Heat oil in a pan, sauté garlic till fragrant.
  2. Add in mussels and stir-fry till you see they change colour.
  3. Add in cooking wine and simmer till it’s cooked.
  4. Add a pinch of salt.
  5. Dish and serve.
Like clams, mussels when cooked produce some sauce. Hence water is not required. And there’s a natural sweetness in Mussels so not much seasonings is required.


  1. Wow wokkingmum, this is hubby loves i got the recipes! The problem I had with those recipes on sale at the bookstore is that sometimes they have funny ingredients which I dont know what they are! :p

  2. I understand, especially those ang-moh cookbook right?

  3. Hi Wokking Mum, my hubby love shell seafood especially mussels and clams.

    As you know, shell seafood are all deep inside the sand. How do u get grid of the sandy part? Throw them into a pot of hot water to let them spill out automatically? Hope that u can clear my doubt on this area. Thanks:)
