Mosselen. Zo uit Zeeland
  • Mussels go perfectly with fries, bread or pasta and salad.
  • Popular mussel ingredients: leek, onion, celery, garlic, carrot, pepper, wine, beer, knob of butter, dash of cream.
  • Calculate 1 kilo of mussels (in shell) per person when serving with fries, salad or pasta. Calculate 1.2 to 1.5 kg per person for a meal with bread.
  • Prepare mussels as soon as possible after purchase.
  • Briefly rinse mussels with water before cooking.
  • Do not leave mussels in the water; doing so will cause them to lose their characteristic salty taste.
  • Give mussels that are open a tap. If the mussel closes it is good and can be added to the pan.
  • Use a large pan with lid so that the mussels have enough space to open. Shake the pan several times so that the mussels on the bottom are moved to the top and vice versa.
  • While the mussels are cooking, bake the fries, cut the baguette and put the sauces in bowls.
  • Put the pan on the table when all the mussels are open.
  • Perfect with a glass of beer, wine or cider. Enjoy!
