Ingredients (serves 3 – 4)

  • 2 kg fresh mussels
  • 250ml Asturian cider
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • cracked black pepper

Method

Prep up your fresh mussels by removing the beards and scraping the shells as required.

Place the mussels in a large pan or Spanish Olla and put on a high heat, steam for 6 – 8 minutes until opened.

Meanwhile, place your diced onion, bay leaf, pepper and cider into a cazuela and reduce by around half over a high heat.

Pour in any remaining juices from the steamed mussel and stir.

Place the mussels into a large bowl/cazuela and pour over the cider sauce. Enjoy with fresh crusty bread!
