Creamy Mussel Soup

Another fantastic recipe - Powered By KETO4X.COM

Cuisine:

DH really loved this! He was pleasantly surprised that I made mussels other than the usual way. The tip about cooking the mussels in a separate pot was very nice indeed! Purists will want to keep all the flavor of the mussels in the soup's broth, but realists will appreciate that there is enough flavor in the broth already. I did use evaporated milk because that is what I had on hand. I think that will lower the fat content somewhat and it was still terrific. DH added a few drops of Tabasco, just for fun.

Steps

1
Done

Scrub mussels and remove hairy beards from them. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a fry pan, add onion and garlic and cook until onion is soft. In a small pan cook bacon until browned then drain on absorbent paper.

2
Done

In a large saucepan add enough water that will cover mussels and bring water to boil. Add mussels to pan, cover and cook for a few minutes or until mussels open. drain and discard any mussels that do not open. (I cook mussels in a separate pan so that any sand or grit that has not been washed off does not end up in my soup). Remove shells completely from some of the mussels, remove half the shell from others and leave some complete. This is for presentation and ease of eating.

3
Done

Wash saucepan and return to medium heat combine wine, lemon juice, water, both stocks, and onion garlic mixture, bring liquid to boil then reduce heat to a simmer, add cream and bacon. Remove pan from heat. In a bowl lightly beat egg yolks and add a few tablespoons of soup mixture to egg and mix, then add to soup, return pan to a low heat add mussels and basil and stir until heated through.
