Grilled Mussels in Beer and Garlic

Prep time 10 minutes
Cook time about 10 minutes

2 lbs mussels, scrubbed, beards removed
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 teas crushed red pepper flates
3 tbsp finally chopped fresh parsley
1 12 oz bottle light beer or 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth + 1 tsp hot sauce

Preheat grill to medium (300-350 degrees F). Divide mussels among 4 large sheets of heavy-duty foil. Pull the ends of the foil up; crimp the edges and sides to enclose the juices. In a bowl stir together the beer or broth, hot sauce, garlic, salt and red pepper flakes. Pour sauce over mussels. Place foil pouches with mussels on grill, and cook covered for 5 to 6 minutes until mussels begin to open and turn opaque. Transfer grilled mussels and juices to a serving platter or bowl. Discard any mussels that did not open. Sprinkle parsley over mussels and serve. Serves 4.
