recipe image Steaming mussels with mustard


  • 1 kg. fresh mussels, clean
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 50 ml. Altis Traditional Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 50 ml. dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons ouzo
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 50 ml. lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons parsley, minced
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Salt


      1. In a big saucepan, we heat the olive oil and slightly saute the garlic; we add the mustard, wine, ouzo, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
      2. Once we bring the liquids to a boil, we add the mussels and sprinkle with the parsley.
      3. We close the lid and continue to boil the mix in medium heat for 6-7 min.
      4. We remove the mix from the heat and remove any mussels that have not opened; we serve the mussels with their juices.
      - We can add more flavour with star anise or fennel seeds
