  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 anchovies, finely chopped
  • Pinch crushed red pepper (to taste)
  • 1 medium leek, green and white parts, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 pounds live mussels, scrubbed and debearded
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 5 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 baguette, sliced, for dipping

Cooking Directions

  1. Heat a large pot with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat. When hot, add the olive oil, anchovies, and crushed red pepper, and stir for 30 seconds or so. Add the leeks, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the leeks are soft. Add the wine and bring to a strong simmer. Add the mussels, cover the pot, and steam until the mussels have all opened, 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. While the mussels cook, stir the butter, garlic, and parsley together in a small bowl. Divide mussels between bowls. Add the garlic-parsley butter to the broth left in the bottom of the pot. Stir until the butter just melts, then pour the broth over the mussels. Serve immediately, with baguette slices.

    Soy Sauce-Poached Halibut Cheeks

    Since fish cheeks are the best part of the fish, and halibut's flavor is so light, you hardly have to do anything to make it taste good. In this recipe, a quick poach in a soy sauce-based mixture is all it takes to whip up a quick dish.

    The almonds add a crunchy, nutty flavor to the flaky halibut and the addition of a little honey mustard gives an unexpected hint of sweetness.
