Steamed mussels are delicious, but it's nice to do something different once in awhile. Enter these grilled mussels, topped with an herby aioli and grilled till hot and bubbly. Perfect with a glass of chilled white.

12 large mussels
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
3 cloves garlic
1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Method Prep:10min › Cook:5min › Ready in:15min
Add mussels and wine to a hot pan over high heat. Simmer for a few minutes, until mussels just open up. Discard any mussels that do not open.
Remove and discard the top shell, leaving the bottom shell to which the mussel is attached.
Combine mayonnaise, parsley, garlic, pepper and lemon juice. Mix thoroughly.
Carefully snip the muscle that attaches the mussel to the shell (this will make it easier to eat).
Arrange the mussels on a baking tray. Brush mussels with the mayo mixture.
Place under the oven's grill for about 5 minutes, till bubbly. Serve hot.
