Done

Preheat broiler. Bring the wine to a boil over high heat in a saucepan.

Let Mussels cool, separate the shells from each other so that each mussel is on half shell loosen the meat from the shell, and arrange the filled shells on a baking sheet.

4
Done

In a small mixing bowl, combine bread crumbs with remaining ingredients, gradually add in the olive oil into the bread crumb mixture while stirring with a fork. The goal is to keep the mixture moist, crumbly, and loose (without clumps).

5
Done

Top the mussels with the bread crumb mixture, add enough to fill the cup... then drizzle each Mussel with Olive Oil.

Place under broiler for 2 to 3 minutes until lightly golden, it is very easy to overcook at this point, so keep an eye on the progress. Serve warm from oven, or room temperature with Lemon Wedges.

Let set out to reach room temp, before placing in the oven.

Notes: Mussels can be fully prepared in advance (day before), kept refrigerated.
