(also moules à la marinière)
Mussels served in their shells and cooked in a wine and onion sauce.
- I did manage 472 pieces of sushi, seven bowls of moules marinière (two of which came up again), and 3.7kg of salmon, (which didn't).
- We fell upon our potted shrimps and moules marinière with little slurpings, gasps and squeals of delight.
- My foodie partner-in-crime had moules marinière from the starter menu as a main course.
French, literally 'mussels in the marine style'.
