Sake Miso Mussels with Wilted Greens Recipe

I love to get away. If there’s a trip to be had, I can be packed and ready with suitcase in hand within minutes. Like that one time my coworker casually invited me on a last minute trip to Europe and showed up at the airport a day later with luggage and ticket in hand. True, it was slightly awkward at first but we ended up having an amazing time and have been close friends ever since. But no matter where my travels takes me, the one thing I miss is a home cooked meal so I cook and cook and cook when I return even if it’s something simple like these Miso Mussels with Wilted Greens. 

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil or coconut oil
  • 2 medium garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger (from 1-inch piece)
  • 2 medium shallots thinly sliced
  • 2 pounds mussels
  • 1 1/4 cups dry sake or white wine
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons white (aka yellow or mellow) miso
  • 4 ounces baby spinach or baby tatsoi thinly sliced
  • Toasted crusty bread for serving

Instructions
 

  • Heat oil in a medium 3-quart saucepan or cast iron pot over medium heat. When oil is warm and shimmers, add shallots, turn to coat and cook until just softened. Add ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
    Add mussels, stir to coat, then add sake or wine and cover. Cook until mussels open, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove mussels to a serving plate (discard any mussels that don't open). Add miso and butter to the saucepan and stir until smooth. Immediately remove from heat, stir in greens until just wilted, pour over mussels (avoiding any grit at the bottom of the pan), and serve with copious amounts of crusty bread.
