Preparation

  • In a large casserole, gently cook the leeks in 30 ml (2 tbsp.) of butter. Avoid letting the butter darken. Add the celery and continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the white wine and bring to a boil.
  • Add the mussels as soon as the boiling commences. Cover and cook over high heat until the mussels open, approximately 5 minutes.
