- Pre-heat a large heavy bottom pot over medium-high heat along with the butter.
Add the shallots, garlic, thyme, along with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt & a couple cracks of pepper. Cook for 5 minutes until the shallots are soft.
Add the wine along with another small pinch of salt & pepper & add the mussels. Bring to a boil, put the lid on the pan, a cook for 5 minutes until all the mussels open.
