2 Garlic clove, chopped
2 Cup Mushrooms

step #1

Take a medium-sized pot, and add your mussels and chopped garlic - you'll want to leave some room for other ingredients, so make sure you've got a large enough pot.

step #2

Take your mushrooms and slice them into large pieces. This'll allow them to cook easily with the rest of the ingredients in your pot, so add them in as well. Cover the pot and turn your stove up to high heat, allowing it to steam for approximately three minutes.

step #3

Before you add your shrimp, be sure to leave the skins on. This will help control the speed at which the shrimp cook in your pot, and will prevent them from becoming chewy and overcooked.

step #4

Add your shrimp to the top of the pot, alongside one small bunch of thyme. Cover the pot, and continue to steam for approximately four to five minutes. When your shrimp have gone red, take it off the heat and prepare to plate!

step #5

Ready to serve!
