Mussels in White Wine and Cream

When eating ketogenic, do not spare the cream.  Weirdly, mussels are not the most lo carb of shellfish, but they are lo carb enough.  This was the treat that we brought home from our recent trip to Costco.

  • 2 pounds fresh mussels
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp yellow onion
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
-In a deep stock pot, heat garlic, onion and olive oil over medium heat until fragrant.
-Add mussels, cream, wine, chicken stock, lemon, salt, thyme and red pepper flakes.  Stir a few times, cover and and cook for 10 minutes over medium heat until mussels open.
-When mussels open, turn off heat and transfer mussels and some of their broth into a serving bowl.  Top with fresh parsley.
