River Exe Mussels with Pancetta, Leek & Cider

For a starter, serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 kg of cleaned mussels
  • 6 rashers of pancetta (good quality bacon also works really well)
  • 2 shallots finely sliced
  • 2 leeks washed and finely sliced
  • 1 small bunch of chopped parsley
  • 350ml of good local scrumpy cider
  • 150ml of whipping cream

 

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large heavy based sauce pan on a medium heat, add the pancetta with a little oil and fry until it begins to stick to the pan.
  2. Add the shallots and leeks and continue to fry, however don't allow then to colour. 
  3. Add the mussels, followed by the cider and place a lid on top.
  4. After a couple of minutes remove the lid and the mussels should now be open. (If not just turn the heat up, give it a shake and place the lid back on until they do).
  5. Add the cream and the chopped parsley check for seasoning and serve with warm crusty bread.
