Grilled and drizzled with a tangy vinaigrette, mussels make an out-of-the-ordinary entrée.

Ingredients

24
large fresh mussels in shells (2 lb)
1/3
cup olive or vegetable oil
3
tablespoons red wine vinegar or sherry vinegar
1
tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1
tablespoon diced pimientos, drained
1
teaspoon capers, if desired
1/4
teaspoon salt
6
drops red pepper sauce
1
green onion, finely chopped

Directions

  • 1 Discard any broken-shell or open (dead) mussels that do not close when tapped. Scrub remaining mussels, removing any barnacles with a dull paring knife. Remove beards by tugging them away from shells.
  • 2 Place mussels in large container. Cover with cool water. Agitate water with hand, then drain and discard water. Repeat several times until water runs clear; drain.
  • 3 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In tightly covered container, shake remaining ingredients. Cover; refrigerate until serving.
  • 4 Place mussels on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until mussels open, removing mussels as they open. Discard any unopened mussels. Place mussels on serving platter; drizzle with oil mixture.
