Mussels are relatively cheap and plentiful for shellfish, and can be sourced sustainably. They taste incredible simply steamed in a light shallot sauce or added to other dishes for a seafood mix.
Get creative with our collection of mussel recipes, celebrating the best of these beautiful bivalves. Recipes include Tom Aikens' take on rustic French favourite bouillabaisse with a medley of seafood, while Shaun Rankin's linguine with mussels combines the shellfish with chorizo - a winning combination.
Mussels pair beautifully with salt cod in Frances Atkins' potage of mussels and salt cod recipe, with the addition of fennel and star anise adding a refreshing touch to the seafood soup.
