Mussels Platter (1-4)

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.

Mussels with Curry Cream Sauce (2)

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.

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.
