  • Try our nifty new way to cook mussels – just pop them in a foil bag, add in garlic, white wine and cream and cook them on the barbecue – they taste amazing!


    • 1kg fresh mussels, cleaned,
    • 4 shallots, peeled and sliced,
    •  2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
    •  Handful of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
    • 150ml dry white wine
    • 100ml double cream


    • Make 2 large double-layered foil parcels.

    • Divide between them the fresh mussels, shallots, garlic cloved and a handful of flat-leaf parsley.

    • Pour over dry white wine and double cream and seal the parcels.

    • Put on top of the barbecue (add a lid if you have one) and cook for 8-10 mins until all mussels are open. Discard any that remain closed.
