⏲️ Prep Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 15 minutes Serves: 4 as an appetizer
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2-cup dry white wine (Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc)
4 Tbsp. (1/2-stick) salted butter
1/2-cup chicken broth
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
3 Tbsp. Ocean's Balance Kelp Purée
1 (2 lb.) bag mussels, rinsed, scrubbed clean, and beards removed

In a large sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes, being careful not to let the garlic turn brown.
Pour in white wine, cook for two minutes. Stir in butter, chicken broth and 1 tablespoon of the chopped parsley; cook for another 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and kelp; stir until well combined
Raise heat to medium high, add mussels and stir to coat them with the sauce. Cover the sauté pan and continue cooking for 7 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mussels are open. Taste the sauce and adjust seasoning as necessary. Remove any unopened mussels.
Pour into a large, shallow serving bowl, top with remaining parsley. Serve with baguette slices.
