Wash mussels thoroughly under running water. Remove "beards" and discard any open shells. Place mussels in pan and cook over a high temperature for 7 or 8 minutes, until the shells open. Season with salt or pepper. Place in a serving dish and pour cooking juices over.
Dot with knobs of butter and sprinkle with chopped chives. Serve with fresh brown bread and butter.
