    I don’t think it would be a good idea to flutter my eyelashes at our local fishmonger, he’s usually got a very large sharp knife in his hand ;o)

    I think I’ll just ask him very nicely, it would probably be safer.

    The best recipes are usually also the simplest x

    Ha ha, love the advice on number of glasses of wine. One should always be realistic when discussing quantities.

    Sounds great but you wrote to add a “healthy glug of cream”. What type and amount of cream? Not sure what amount a GLUG would be. lol Many thanks.

    Hi Paula. The type of cream is up to you. Many people like to use a thick double cream, although I prefer a slightly healthier single cream.
    As for the amount… probably about 3 or 4 tablespoons… but you can add more if you want more creamy juices.
    Enjoy! x

    I think Alf was distasteful. Some people can’t stand it when someone is enjoying themselves more then they are. Will try your recipe & will let you know how I like it (and I’m sure I will take your advice on the amount of wine!).

    I adore steamed mussels…when they have all opened in their marvelous juices I sprinkle flavored breadcrumbs over them Some fall on the mussels and some in the pan. Its all good. I do flavor with garlic, butter, olive oil S and p…they can be scooped up and slurped down….oh yes the white wine….in the juice and in a glass too.

    I haven’t tried them with breadcrumbs. Do you toast them first?

    I think Jan is uptight. Some people don’t understand humor that doesn’t come out of their own mind. This recipe is about spot-on how I prepare it. Now it’s 7am and I w̶a̶n̶t̶ need a big ol’ pot of mussels!

    I think she was joking Matt ;)

    Let’s hope she was joking, because I sure was ;)

    Typing from lovely Ohio, USA, where it’s a balmy -15C!

    Ha – you kidder you!
    -15? Oof – I don’t envy you. It’s about 8C here at the moment in a not so sunny Spain… but I refuse to forego my flip-flops (although I am huddled in several fleecy layers) ;)
