A stew of mussels and clams served over chargrilled bread which I found in Rick Stein’s ” Meditteranean Escapes”.
A mussel soup with saffron and wine which I found in ” The Little Book of Big Soups” by Lindsay Bareham. Serve with plenty of crusty bread to mop up the delicious liquor.
This is another recipe from the ” Belgo Cookbook” by Denis Blais and Andre Plisnier.
This recipe is for the basic preparation of a plate or platter of mussels on the half shell, which you can then top with various sauces. Its from the ” Belgo Cookbook”. It will serve one as a main course, two as a starter or four as a Tapas.
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. Mussels are packed with minerals. high in protein and low in saturated fats so one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Enjoy.
I found this South Indian inspired recipe in a recent purchase from a charity shop – ” Gastro-Geek” by Regina Sabur- Cross. I discovered that Regina had a food blog in 2009 and although it does not seem to have been updated recently more of her recipes can be found here- https://gastrogeek.wordpress.com. Enjoy!
This mussel soup from Puglia is typical of the southern Italian style of cooking and is a favourite from ” The River Cafe Cook Book”.
A soup from the Ligurian coast of Italy which can be found in ” The River Cafe Cook Book” by Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers. Unusually for an Italian fish soup it contains no tomatoes.

This recipe for seafood with cream and cheese from France can be found in Rick Stein’s “Seafood Odyssey”.
