1 Soak the mussels in cold water 30 minutes. Cut or pull off the beards. Discard any mussels with cracked shells or that do not close tightly when touched.
2 Pour the oil into a large pot. Add the garlic. Cook over medium heat until golden, about 1 minute. Stir in the parsley and pepper. Add the mussels, wine, and lemon juice to the pot. Cover and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until the mussels begin to open, about 5 minutes.
3 Transfer the opened mussels to serving bowls. Cook any mussels that remain closed a minute or two longer. Discard any that do not open. Pour the cooking liquid over the mussels. Serve hot.
