Garlicky Mussels
By :The Keto Reset by Mark Sisson
Print Recipe
Research confirms that mussels are among the most nutrient- dense foods on the planet—a favorite of humans for over 20,000 years! They offer some of the highest concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids (highest of any shellfish), along with key minerals like iron, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, and zinc. I don’t know about you, but until recently I’d only eaten mussels in a restaurant because I guessed— incorrectly—that they might be hard to make. Now you can flex your mussel muscles with this simple and delicious recipe.

Instructions
  1. Set the Instant Pot to Sauté and melt the butter. When the butter is beginning to foam, add the shallot and garlic and sauté until fragrant and lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Place the mussels in the pot. Pour the broth and lemon juice over the mussels.
  3. Press Cancel. Secure the lid and set the steam release valve to Sealing. Press the Pressure Cook or Manual button and set the cook time to 3 minutes.
  4. When the Instant Pot beeps, carefully switch the steam release valve to Venting to quick-release the pressure. When fully released, open the lid. Discard any mussels that did not open during cooking.
  5. Carefully transfer the mussels to a serving bowl. Pour any remaining liquid from the pot over the mussels and sprinkle with the parsley. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

To prepare mussels, wash them well and debeard them. Rinse them in a colander and scrub them with a scrub brush under running water. If any of the mussels have a beard—a hairy bit that sticks out between the shells near the hinge—grab it with your fingers and pull it off. Mussels are only safe to cook if they are shut (which means they are still alive). Test open mussels by tapping them on the counter. If they close, they are safe to cook.

    Delicious! I took a recommendation on here to double the butter and glad I did. I ended up having 3lbs of mussles and it was perfect.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    I am really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A number of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

    My husband and i got really glad that Ervin could finish off his investigations out of the precious recommendations he acquired through the site. It is now and again perplexing to just happen to be handing out facts that most people could have been trying to sell. Therefore we see we have got the writer to be grateful to for this. All the illustrations you’ve made, the straightforward web site menu, the relationships you can help to promote – it is mostly extraordinary, and it is letting our son in addition to the family reason why that theme is satisfying, which is certainly pretty mandatory. Thank you for all!
