Grilling mussels is surprisingly easy- the hardest part is finding fresh mussels to throw on the grill. There are really only two steps to doing it: 1) creating the drawn butter you will pour over the mussels and 2) grilling the mussels.
Ingredients: (Enough for 2 as an appetizer, if serving four double the recipe)
- 2 lb of mussels
- 2 lemons
- 1 stick butter
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 large bunch parsley or herb of your choice, chopped
- Sea salt, fresh ground pepper to taste

Prepare a grill for medium direct heat. While grill is heating up, Melt your butter over low heat. Add the garlic and herbs and let reduce down.
Grilling: If your grill grate skew to being far apart, you will need to put your mussels on a grill/veggies pan. If they are within a small enough apart, you can grill the mussels directly on the grates. Grill the mussels until the pop open. This will be around 5 minutes or so… The ones that open move to a less hot part of the grill while waiting on the others. Any mussels that don’t open should be thrown away.
Place the mussels in a big bowl and add sea salt and pepper. Pour the butter over the mussels.
These are also really great with grilled bread- grill bread pieces until char marks form while also grilling the mussels. Dip them in the drawn butter! YESSSSS!
