New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels with Garlic Butter

Serves two:

Ingredients

  • 12 New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels - half shell
  • 150gms Butter (softened but not melted)
  • 1 medium Fresh Garlic Clove (minced) 
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Italian Parsley (finely chopped) 
  • To season Flaky Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper

Method:

In a suitable mixing bowl mix the butter, garlic & parsley.

Pre-heat the oven to a medium heat (approx 160°C I 320°F).

Set the half shell mussels on to a suitable baking tray with sides (to stop any juice from spilling). With a teaspoon evenly distribute the butter mixture on top of all the mussels. Place into the oven & allow to bake for approx 5-7 minutes, or until all the mussels are evenly hot.

Remove from the tray on to a suitable service plate or tray, any juices from the mussels can be used to baste the mussels prior to service.

Garnish with fresh Italian parsley & serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over the top.
