Mmmmussels. We haven’t had mussels for a while and when deciding on something fun to cook this evening, we decided that it was high time that we had them again.

We cooked them in a fairly typical moules mariniere style recipe. Except that I should have reduced the sauce a bit at the end (Kerri was on the phone at this point and not able to advise me) as it was a bit watery, but still tasty. Although the sauce was good, the mussels themselves weren’t that great; we bought them from Waitrose and we’ve had pretty decent mussels from there several times in the past, but this time they weren’t quite up to scratch. Served with frites of course, and some ciabatta to soak up the sauce.

    Ahh, mussels, I asbolutely adore them and don’t eat them enough. One of the best things about cooking mussels for me though, is the noise they make when you stir them around in the pan! clink, clink, clack, clack. Love it.

    Good luck when you do, not that you’ll need it I don’t think as they’re pretty easy 🙂
