Live Pot Ready New Season Mussels with Cider and
This dish is a true celebration of the new season Kinkawooka Petit Bouchot mussels. These small sweet mussels are arguably the best eating mussels in Australia throughout the winter months and into spring.
We recommend using cider for the recipe to accentuate the natural sweetness of the mussels.
1 Knob of Butter
1 Shallots, finely sliced
1 Garlic Clove, sliced
100ml Apple Cider or White Wine
1kg Kinkawooka ‘Pot Ready’ Mussels
1tbs Crème Fraiche
Small bunch flat-leaf Parsley, chopped
Crusty bread to serve
Melt a knob of butter in a large pot on high heat. Cook the shallots and garlic for 1-2 minutes
Add the Cider or wine and drained mussels. Cook lid on for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mussels have opened.
Stir in the parsley and Crème Fraiche
Serve in bowls accompanied with crusty bread. Yum!
