  1. Check the mussels: throw away shells that are broken or that do not close after a firm tap. Put the mussels, wine and celery in a large high-sided pan. Grind a generous quantity of pepper over it. Boil the mussels, covered for 6-8 minutes, or until all of the shells are open. Take the mussels out of the shells.
  2. Scrub 1 lemon clean. Grate the peel off and squeeze the lemon. Beat a marinade of lemon juice, the lemon zest and the olive oil in a bowl. Mix in the chili pepper, the garlic and the herbs. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Mix the mussels into the marinade and marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  4. Divide the mussels over dishes or glasses. Cut the last lemon into small segments or slices and serve with the marinated mussels. Provide cocktail sticks. Tasty with a glass of (white) beer.

    Tip Serve marinated mussels at a party alongside olives and nuts: easy and stylish!
