Ms. Bic's Mejillones a la Vinagreta (Spanish Mussels)

Although we call them "Spanish Mussels" at our house. Whatever you call them, they are one of the very best mussel dishes in the world. People who think they don't like mussels often love these.

Last night we had some good friends join us for dinner. The main course featured "Leaping Frog Chicken." It's a great grilled chicken dish with Latin American roots. I did a post on it a few months ago. Click here to check it out.

Ms. Bic figured her Spanish Mussels would be perfect for an appetizer. She was absolutely right. Accompanied by a cold bottle of Spanish Albarino white wine, they were a great start to the meal and a big hit. Here's her recipe.

For dessert we had Ms. Bic's heavenly Phyllo Pear Flowers with Berry Centers. But that will have to be a post of its own.
