Cook Time:
  • 1.00 kg Fresh Mussels, rinsed and de bearded
  • 1 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 2 heaped tablespoons Parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 clove Garlic, finely grated
  • 1 small lemon's Zest
  • 8 tablespoons JOSEPH Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Blanche the mussels in a saucepan with 1 cm of water. Keep the lid on for two minutes so that the mussels open.

Drain the water and allow the mussels to cool.

Place the breadcrumbs, parsley, garlic, lemon zest and a pinch of salt and pepper into a bowl. Mix thoroughly with a spoon.

Sprinkle a dash of JOSEPH Extra Virgin Olive Oil over the mixture (approximately 8 tbsps). Combine so that the breadcrumbs are ‘dampened’ with the oil.

Turn on your oven grill at maximum heat.

Take one mussel and remove the shell ‘lid’. Place a spoonful of the breadcrumb mixture over the mussel and pat it down to fill the shell as pictured. Repeat for all mussels

Place the stuffed mussels on a grilling tray, shell side down.

Place the tray of stuffed mussels under the very hot oven grill. Cook for 3 1/2 - 4 minutes. The breadcrumbs should begin to turn brown and crispy.

Serve with slices of lemon and a fresh glass of chilled La Biondina!
