-mussels should not be left on the fire for more than 5 minutes because they tighten and become like "chewing gum". To be velvety tender and soft, 3-4 minutes is fine.

- impose the garlic on the mussels because it highlights them

- If the leek is of the season, add a little to the sauté for extra aroma and taste.
