This I love while drinking way to much wine on a summers night with good friends, not sure why but it sure works. You can serve these muscles with some nice crusty bread or some fries. Either way they are perfect tapas for summer.

  • Prep Time:
    5 min
  • Cook Time:
    15 min
  • Ready Time:
    20 min


2 servings


  • one bag of farm raised muscles you dont want to be cleaning beards from muscles
  • rice flour
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • juice of half a lemon
  • knob of unsalted butter
  • kosher salt
  • handful of chopped parsley


Start with your muscles and into a hot pot with a good glug of  white wine and steam until they are open about 5 min or so. Discard any ones that are not open as they are dead.

Let them cool for a few min and start removing them from their shells as you can see in my pictures. Now using a small cast iron pan or a small frying pan preheat it in a 500 degree oven for 15 min with some olive oil in the bottom.

Take your muscles and toss them in some rice flour and shake off any excess and into the hot pan along with the chopped garlic and a little kosher salt. Give them a quick stir to make sure they get evenly coverd with garlic and olive oil. Add a knob of butter and  the fresh lemon juice and back into the oven for 2 min until the butter and lemon juice looks like its foaming a bit.

Take out and finish with some chopped parsley. Serve with some fries or best some crusty bread to soak up all that great lemon garlic butter.
