Steamed Mussels in White Wine Sauce {Cooking Planit Review}

By now you’ve probably heard enough of me talking about Cooking Planit and T-fal cookware from my giveaway teaser post and the Cooking Planit Review (check out those two posts if you found yourself lost at this point), I figure it’d be a good time to actually cook a dish using the app and the cookware.

Finding the recipe on Cooking Planit was really easy. As I was craving for some seafood I decided to try out the Steamed Mussels in White Wine Sauce. Here is how it went down:

I pretty much followed the recipe to the T except for a few minor changes which I’ll note below. If you have ever cooked mussels before you probably know that the shellfish does need a little cleaning work before you cook it. Cooking Planit has all that covered in details. The entire cooking experience was impressive as I felt very much in control the whole time even though it was my first time cooking this dish.

I do realize this is my first recipe post ever since I moved to my new apartment so I am really excited to debut my new kitchen on a Cooking Planit recipe.

I started with all the prepare work suggested by the app. I first prepared my lemon, shallots (substituted with onion), garlic, and parsley according to the recipe. I then cleaned the mussels following in the detailed instructions.

In my newly acquired T-fal pot, I sauteed the onions until softened

Add the garlic to the pot and sauteed for another minute

Add mussels, white wine, water (omitted), and lemon wheels (only used squeezed lemon juice). Stir to combine all the ingredients

Cover and steam until the mussels open, about 7-10 minutes. Transfer the cooked mussels to clean bowl

(I only steamed for 5.5 minutes as I like my mussels to be slightly undercooked)

Put the pot of cooking liquid back on stove. Add butter, parsley, salt, and pepper. Drizzle the cooking liquid over the top.

    Dear Yi!
    Greetings from Japan!
    Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
    This recipe reminds me of my native country, France, although it comes from Belgium! LOL
    Mind you ,they have to use French white wine as none is made in Belgium!
    Best regards,

      Hi Robert, thank you very much for stopping by my blog. I have to admit that I didn’t use vin blanc for this recipe but I’ll keep that in mind next time. Thanks again.

    Been wanting to try steamed mussel (or clams) in wine sauce for such a long time! This looks very delicious.

    I love steamed mussels in wine sauce! Particularly with plenty of garlic. Love to mop up the sauce with some nice crusty bread. Good recipe – thanks!
