Mussels in White Wine

It's summer, we're in Maine, fresh shellfish is plentiful and we are hungry.  How about mussels for dinner tonight?

Our favorite mussel recipe comes from Ina Garten's cookbook, The Barefoot in Paris.

Tender mussels simmering in a luxuriant broth of white wine, plum tomatoes, fresh thyme, with sauteed shallots and garlic.  Serve with crusty french bread for a delicious and satisfying light supper or appetizer.

Best wine pairing is a Pinot Gris or Sauvignon Blanc according to Wine Enthusiast magazine.
