• ½ TBS Kosher salt
• 1 tsp black pepper
Directions:

3. Add sliced garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Do not allow garlic to burn.
4. Add white wine.
5. Add mussels, season with salt pepper and crushed red pepper. Cover pot or pan, allow mussels to steam for 4-5 minutes. If mussels do not open toss them, it wasn’t meant to be….
