I was raised to not eat Red Meat on Good Friday. This is a tradition I have kept up with my own family.
This recipe is perfect for such a day.
I however do not eat mussels LOL. Hubby and kids love them. You could also poach other seafood in this liquid too.
1 kg of Mussels (Scrubbed, cleaned and beards removed)
2 Tbs Intense Garlic Olive Oil
1 Tbs. unsalted butter
4-6 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2cm piece of ginger grated
500ml of Stock of your choice
1 teaspoon of Saffron Salt
Good squeeze of lemon juice
OPTIONAL : Fresh Chilli for added heat
Bring stock and other aromats to the boil, pop in mussels and cover. Steam until opened.
Serve with crusty bread.
