    Boring -- no flavor came through. Not how I want to spend $25 worth of mussels.

    I am very disappointed that Cooking Light would publish this recipe. I agree with another reviewer who said this was boring and that no flavor came through. How could it - this is a 5 ingredient recipe! Cooking Light tasters should have known that. What is missing is salt and pepper and maybe some red pepper flakes. I love fennel but for some reason it did not come through in this recipe.

    If you simply substitute clam broth for water, throw in a few shakes of crushed red pepper and a pinch of herbes de provence, this is just fine. It's the water that's the culprit as written.
