Stages of cooking

  1. Wash the mussels first. Remove the beards and throw away the dead mussels (if any). Check whether the mussels are dead by tapping the shells with a knife. If they open quickly after the tapping, it means that they are dead. Having sorted out quality mussels, take a pot, melt the butter and fry the shallots and pepper in it. Add thyme, bay leaf, black pepper and salt.
