Garlic butter roasted mussels

Today is national garlic day, to celebrate I have made garlic stuffed mussels! Healthy, simple and good for you.

  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 25g/1oz unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander, plus extra to garnish
  • 6 green-lipped mussels, de-bearded and cleaned, one shell removed
  • 75g/3oz fresh breadcrumbs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ lime, cut into wedges

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, butter and coriander.
Place the mussels on a small baking tray. Divide the butter between the mussels, then sprinkle over the breadcrumbs and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes.
To serve, transfer to a warm plate and sprinkle with coriander and lime wedges.

  1. Missed National Garlic Day - this recipe sounds great. And simple to make. We've been going mad over foraging for wild garlic over at @food_mag HQ. Do you think wild garlic would work in place of cloves?
