Mussels 1 pack
White wine 4-5 tbsp
Rice 300g
Olive oil 2 tbsp
Pine nuts 2 tbsp
Garlic 1 clove
Cinnamon 1 tsp
Light brown sugar 1 tsp
Sea salt 1/2 tsp
Dried mint 1 tsp

Method

1
Put the white wine in a large pan on high heat. Add the mussels and put the lid on, steam for 5-6 minutes. Shake the pan occasionally until the shells are open.
2
Remove the lid and ensure all the mussels are open. Turn the heat off.
3
When hand hot, remove all the mussels (except 6-8) from their shells. If you have time, sieve this liquid.
4
Add water to the liquid to make 360ml.
5
In another pan, heat the oil on medium and add finely chopped garlic and pine nuts.

When you can smell the garlic, add the cinnamon, unwashed rice, mint, sugar and salt. Fry, then add the liquid from Step 4.
7
Add the opened mussels, put the lid on and turn the heat to high. When it starts to boil, turn the heat down low and simmer for 30 minutes. Then turn the heat off for 10 minutes to continue cooking on residual heat.
8
Mix lightly and transfer to a dish. Garnish with the mussels in shells.

Tips & Note

●You can use finely chopped fresh mint (1-2 tsp) instead of the dried mint.
●Make sure to discard any unopened mussels at Step 2.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.
 
Looking for an easy alternative to a traditional seafood boil? Need a simple recipe that works for both fresh or frozen seafood? If so, you need to see my Easy Seafood Pot recipe in episode 108 of POV Italian Cooking
 
Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto. This risotto serves as the bed upon which Beef Osso Buco will rest in the next episode (#107).
 
It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
