    Moules marinière

    • Preparation time: 30 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 8


    2kg mussels
    60g unsalted butter
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    300ml white wine
    1 x ½ x 20g pack flat leaf parsley, chopped


    1. Scrub the mussels under cold running water and remove any beards. Discard any with damaged shells or with open shells that do not close when tapped sharply; drain.

    2. Melt the butter in a large pan over a low heat. When foaming, add the onion and sweat for 8 minutes until soft but not coloured, adding the garlic for the last 2 minutes. Season with black pepper, add the wine and simmer until reduced by half.

    3. Tip in the mussels, turn up the heat and cover with a lid. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the mussels have opened. Throw in the parsley, return the lid to the pan and give everything a shake. Serve immediately (discard any mussels that remain closed) with crusty bread, if liked.
