When deciding on serving mussels, here are a few tips.

  1. Buy from a reputable fishmonger.
  2. They are ‘live’ when you buy them.
  3. When you get home, remove the packaging /net
  4. If any of them are open, just tap them & they close straight away.
  5. Discard any cracked shells.

    Preparation of the Mussels
  • Place them in a colander or sieve and take them to the sink.
  • Take a brush & remove any barnacles or sandy bits. Pull any beardy bits down and out.
  • Give each a clean under the tap. You are not soaking them in water.
  • Cooking the Mussels
  • Mussels need a very large pan with lots of room for the sshells to open.
  • Add the butter, garlic and shallots and cook until they are nicely softened.
  • Add the stock. I like using the Knorr Stock Pot, The chicken gives a delicious brothy taste.
  • Add the wine
  • Slide in the mussels and gently stir the mussels around.
  • Covre the pot with a lid and cook for at least 3 minutes before opeing to check on them. They may need another minuute.
  • ***IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT AT THIS STAGE TO CHECK THE SHELL HAS OPENED - DISCARD ANY THAT HAVE NOT OPENED***
  • Add the finely chopped parsley.
  • Add the créme fraiche, and the black pepper.
  • Give a final stir and serve!
