Mussel In Herb Butter That Guarantee Guests Love

The first time I ate mussels was when I visited Galway in Ireland.  The cosy place was situated at the seaside, and while I was enjoying my delicious dish, I saw a fishing ship just docked and unloading its fresh catch. I recreated this memory with a meal called Mussel In Herb Butter which is not only succulent and tasty but also quick and easy to make.
