My daughter made this for a family dinner and we all thought it was excellent. She doubled the amount of sauce and did not reduce it - just put lots of delicious broth over the mussels and it was wonderful for dipping bread. This is definitely a keeper!

This is a good, French style mussel recipe, but I found it to have too strong a pickle taste. I think that the amount should be 1 tablespoon or less. Otherwise good flavor.
