  2. Add the wine (you might want to add more wine) cover and let the mussels cook. (about 5mins) or when all are open, remember to chuck away any closed ones.
  3. Mix in coriander and serve with a glass of chilled white wine and a chunk of crusty bread to dip.
  4. Enjoy if the harissa is too spicy you can use rose harissa it is just as good.
