Classic Moules Mariniere is a dish that my family love. It is full of flavour, textures, looks beautiful and has a warm welcoming aroma that is hard to beat. The mussels are soft and delicate, cooked in white wine, cream, garlic and shallots. A mixture that always going to be amazing. Ideal recipe for a starter and a main dish.

  • Have a check of the mussels before you start cooking. Any mussels that are already open should be discarded as they are not fresh.
  • Place a large saucepan on a high heat with a knob of butter. When the butter has melted, add the chopped cshallots and garlic and fry for a minute or two.
  • When they have started to soften, add the mussels to the pan.
  • Put the lid on the pan and shake vigorously to mix the ingredients together.
  • Remove the lid off and add the wine to the pan.
  • Replace the pan lid and turn the heat down slightly.
  • Leave the mussel, shallot, garlic and white wine mixture to cook for a minute with
  • the lid on and then shake vigorously again.
  • Add the stock and bring the mussel mixture to a boil with the lid on. The mussel shells will start to open.
  • In a separate smaller pan, gently heat the cream until nearly boiling and then add it to the mussel pan.
  • When thorough combined, serve the mussels and sauce into warmed serving dishes.
  • Add finely chopped fresh parsley.
  • Serve immediately with a warmed baguette for dunking.
