Kozani Spiced Mussels 

The saffron & fennel in Kozani Spice is delicious in traditional steamed mussels. Enjoy with French fries or crusty bread. 
Serves 2 as a meal or 4 for an appetizer.

Ingredients:

3 TB butter
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 shallot, sliced
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
1 TB Kozani Spice
2 lbs mussels
lemon wedges

Melt the butter in a large stock pot and add the garlic and shallot. Cook until the garlic & onion begin to turn gold on the edges then add the white wine, stock and Kozani spice. Bring to a simmer then add the mussels all at once and place on the lid. Let steam for a minute, shake the pan, and steam another minute. Check your mussels to see if they've opened and continue to cook for 2-3 more minutes as needed until all the shells have opened. 

Pour into 2 big bowls, making sure to get lots of sauce into the bowl! Serve with big wedges of lemon, French bread, and crisp white wine.
