Mussel and Fennel Broth (4)

When i ate shellfish more regularly I was always looking for new ways to cook them. This recipe is from Ruth Watson’s ” The Really Helpful Cookbook” which is a great source for new mussel recipes among other ideas.

Mussels, Goan style (2-4)

One of the first Indian cookbooks i brought was Madhur Jaffrey’s ” Indian Cookery”, published in 1982 to accompany her TV series of the same name . The paperback cost £4.25 which retrospectively seems quite pricey, but as i spent much of the next few years cooking from it regularly it was no doubt worth it. So a few recipes to follow from my old , stained and well thumbed copy.

These mussels can be served with rice, chips or on their own.
