As you mentioned mussel, how about Mussels in White Wine ?

Loads of mussels, about 1 kilo (frozen saves time)
Onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic
Bit of Parsley
Bit of Dill
Glass decent white wine .... drink the rest ;)
Seasoning to taste
Cornflour to thicken
Dollop of fresh cream or fromage frais

If the mussels are fresh and in shell, then , scrub and wash mussels. If not, then bonus, you've got a bit of time to twindla your thumbs.
Fry the chopped onion gently, unitl translucent then chuck in the crushed garlic, stir for a couple of mins then add the mussels, slosh in the wine, dill and parsely, seasoning. Let simmer for a couple mins wheile you add drop of water to the cornflour, remove pan from heat, stir in cornflour, put back on the heat stirring constanly as you slosh in the cream or fromage frais. Check seaoning and if needed, season to taste, with salt and pepper.

Serve with Verdi Fettuccine.

500g of flour
1.65g of salt
300g of jersey high fat butter
2 eggs battery farmed (cheaper)

mix the above in bowl (dogs did)

take lard cut into 2 pieces (me & biatch)
spread the mix over the lard :wink:

put 136 teaspoons of high fat veg oil or diesel if you aint got any. :wink:

place the lardette into deepfat fryer for approx 67mins

shake
serve with mustard or daddies sauce.

To cut along story short it furorely enjoyed and licked the platter clean...And set me up for a fantastic night of............... :mrgreen: :bounce: :mrgreen: :bounce: :mrgreen:
I would certainly recommend this very cheap but totally delicious recipe for others to enjoy. Merci :P :wink:

I have added this superb recipe to my collection Tripz. I'm quite sure that Tescopoly etc would like to add this to their range of 'High End Ready Meals'. Any royalties you get as a result of the tip, please donate to Clarries Andrexx Fund
