How to Make It
  1. Melt the butter in a large, heavy saucepan, add the onions, and fry gently until lightly browned. Add the mussels, garlic, wine, bay leaves, and thyme. Season to taste. Cover, bring to a boil, and cook for 5–6 minutes, or until the mussels have opened, shaking frequently.
  2. Remove the mussels with a slotted spoon, discarding any that remain closed. Transfer them to warmed bowls, cover, and keep warm.
  3. Strain the liquor into a pan and bring to a boil. Season to taste, add the parsley, pour over the mussels, and serve at once.
