      Heat a cast-iron (or oven-safe) pan over medium heat, and melt the butter. When melted, add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds (keep watch that it doesn’t burn), then pour in the apple cider and bring to a simmer. Add the mussels, cover with a tight fitting lid, and transfer to the Traeger. Cook for 8 –10 minutes, or until the mussels have opened (discard any mussels that do not open).

      While the mussels are cooking, crack on with the salsa verde. Combine the fresh herbs and garlic in a food processor (or high powered blender) and finely chop. Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. With the blender running on low, drizzle in the olive oil in a slow & steady stream until thick and glorious.

      Serve up those beautiful wood-fire kissed mussels with the salsa verde, lemon wedges, and crusty bread. Enjoy!
