Mussels Josephine

This recipe is my version of a very popular mussel dish from my favorite restaurant! The ingredient that makes this recipe so wonderful is the Sambuca, so do not leave it out! I have substituted Pernod and thought that was wonderful as well. Can be served as an appetizer or a main dish. Make sure you have plenty of crusty bread because you will want every last drop of the sauce! Enjoy! Wine Pairing: Domaine de l'Ecu Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 2003 with its yellow apple, lemon zest, pear and Macadamia nuts and light but creamy body is a wonderful match to the dish.
