This is really a French recipe but it is from ” Rhodes Around Britain” by Gary Rhodes. It should be served with Garlic Toasts with Rouille. To make the garlic toast cut a french stick into 1 cm slices and spread with some garlic butter. Toast the slices then top with Rouille.

This is from ” Belgo Cookbook” by Denis Blais and Andre Plisnier. Its a great source for recipes for Mussels ( and indeed other Belgian dishes) so if you eat shellfish and love them as much as i do I recommend hunting out a copy.
