Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger, scallion whites and all but 1/4 cup scallion greens (reserve for garnish) and cook, stirring often, until just starting to brown, 30 seconds to 4 minutes.
  2. Add stock (or clam juice or broth); bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in mussels. Cover and cook just until the mussels have opened, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat (discard any unopened mussels). Stir in the reserved scallion greens. Serve with the sauce from the pan.
