8 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup dry white wine
4 pounds small mussels, scrubbed and debearded
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add water and wine; bring to a boil.
