Moules Marinières

This classic French dish is the perfect proof that great food doesn’t have to be complicated - all it takes is the right ingredients.

Ingredients per serving:

  • 400 g mussels
  • ½ dl white wine
  • 2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
  • 100 g cold butter
  • a small bundle of parsley
  • salt & pepper


  • Clean the mussels by rinsing them in cold water and removing the ‘beards’. Discard any mussels that do not close during this process.
  • Bring white wine and garlic to a boil. Add mussels and leave everything to simmer under a lid for about 4 min. Add salt.
  • When the mussels have been steamed, collect the juices and blend these with butter. Add chopped parsley and season to taste.
  • Move the mussels to a bowl – make sure to discard any un-opened mussels at this stage – and pour over the sauce.
