Kozani Spiced Mussels

Serves 2 as a main.

The beautiful Greek herbs and spices in our Signature Kozani Spice make this a simple and easy entree.  We love this recipe for low-key Summer evenings, or as an appetizer for larger gatherings.

3 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 shallot, sliced
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
1 tablespoon Kozani Spice
2 pounds mussels
Lemon wedges to serve

Melt the butter in a large stock pot and add the garlic and shallot. Cook until the garlic and onion begin to turn gold on the edges then add the white wine, stock, and Kozani Spice. Bring to a simmer then add the mussels all at once and place on the lid. Let steam for a minute, shake the pan, and steam another minute. Check your mussels to see if they've opened and continue to cook for 2-3 more minutes as needed until all the shells have opened. 

Pour into 2 big bowls, making sure to get lots of sauce into the bowl! Serve with big wedges of lemon, French bread, and crisp white wine.
