  • Yield: 6 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 30 Minutes


  • 2 lb mussels
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • ⅓ cup freshly chopped chives
  • ½ cup finely chopped parsley
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp freshly minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It
  1. Inspect the mussels when purchasing and if any are not tightly sealed, discard them and don’t purchase those.
  2. Place mussels in large bowl of cold water. Change water every 30 minutes for 2–3 hours. Mussels will filter in clean water and discard the dirt inside of them.
  3. When mussels have been cleaned, place in the Instant Pot.
  4. Pour white wine and chicken stock over mussels. Add melted butter.
  5. Add the rest of ingredients except for lemon and, using a large spoon, stir gently to combine.
  6. Secure the lid on the Instant Pot and select the Steam mode. Steam for 10 minutes. Allow pressure to release naturally.
  7. Remove lid. Any mussel that hasn’t opened should be discarded.
  8. Heat large sauté pan on the stove. Spray with vegetable oil.
  9. Slice lemons into halves. Pan sear the cut side of lemons to caramelize.
  10. Serve mussels in shallow bowls with broth. Place pan-seared lemon halves on side.
