Steamed Mussels with Apple and Ginger Broth

Steamed Mussels with Apple and Ginger Broth

It’s late Autumn. A grey sky breaks, the winds like a whetted knife and the salt wind catches my cheek. The West Pier may seem challenging with weather like this, but my mind immediately turns to comfort food. Soups, stews, broth and …. ?A Big Bowl of Steamed Mussels?

Serves 4

You’ll need…

2kg – ? ?Mussels, washed and de-bearded

150ml ?Apple Juice, best you can find

150ml ?Cream

? tsp – Ground Ginger

? tsp – Curry Powder

2 – ? – ? Shallots, finely diced

1tsp – ? Chives, finely chopped

1tsp – ? Black Peppercorns, freshly ground

Pinch of Salt

Squeeze of Lemon Juice

 

Place all the ingredients into a heavy bottomed pot.

Cover with a well fitting lid and steam on a high heat, shaking every so often until all the shells are open. Discard any mussels which have not opened. Divide evenly into bowls and sprinkle with chives.
