Mussels in White Wine Sauce

I have not had many food recipe post of late. Not that I've stop playing with food. Just that the kind of food that I've been trying out now are no longer meant for confinement, since there is no need for that now.

We went for an Italian meal recently and had mussels for our appertizers. We loved it and hence, when we saw a recent offer for a box of New Zealand green mussels for only RM20, we grabbed it and attempted the recipe ourselves. It is a very simple dish and relatively easy to prepare.

  • Mussels
  • White Wine
  • Basil leaves
  • Garlic
  • Corn Flour
  • Salt and black pepper


  • Clean mussels thoroughly.
  • Chop basil leaves finely and cut garlic in thin slices
  • Placed mussels, basil leaves, garlic, white wine and a touch of olive oil, a pinch of salt and black pepper together and steamed for 15 minutes or until mussels are cooked.
  • Remove cooked mussels to be used later.
  • Transfer the remaining juice/liquid left from steaming the mussels into a sauce pan.
  • Add a cup of water and simmer.
  • Add additinonal chopped basil leaves if desired.
  • Mix a teaspoon of corn flour with water and add into sauce pan to thicken the sauce.
  • When sauce thickens, add cooked mussels and allow to simmer together for 2 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
