Steamed mussels make a flavorful dinner that can be on the table with little prep and in well under an hour. We cook them with earthy, spicy harissa balanced with a bit of honey, then finish them with a generous amount of herbs for bright, fresh flavor and color. Chickpeas make the dish more substantial and satisfying. Serve with warmed crusty bread for soaking up the delicious broth.

Tip

Don't forget to turn off the heat as soon as you see the mussels begin to open. Cover the pot right away and allow the mussels to gently finish cooking in the residual heat. As you transfer the mussels to a serving bowl, make sure to discard any that haven't opened.

This recipe was so very good. I did not have dill on hand so only used cilantro and the flavors were outstanding. Thank you!

This dish was excellent! We used fresh parsley from our garden instead of cilantro and it still turned out great! Make sure to try this recipe with PEI mussels ;)
