The instruction how to make Mussels with saffron sauce

  1. Soak saffron in hot water in a small bowl. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add wine and bring to the boil. Increase heat to high. Add mussels and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until mussels open. Transfer mussels to a heatproof bowl as they open to prevent overcooking. Set aside. Discard any unopened mussels.
  2. Bring liquid to the boil and cook for 15 minutes or until reduced to 2 3/4 cups (685ml). Strain into a large saucepan. Return half the strained shallots to the saucepan and discard the remainder. Add saffron and cream and bring to the boil. Stir through mussels to reheat.
  3. Divide mussels among shallow serving bowls. Pour over sauce and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
