Pesto Mussels

Nicola Halloran from The Wonky Spatula is in the kitchen this morning with her recipe for pesto mussels.

Ingredients:
800g rope mussels, cleaned and in a bowl of fresh water
4 heaped tbsp of pesto
1 tsp olive oil
Coarse sea salt and cracked black pepper
Salt and pepper
Basil to garnish

Method:
1. Rinse the mussels in some fresh water, place in a bowl full of water and leave to sit for 4–5 minutes.
2. Pick through and discard any mussels at this point which are not closed, drain the water from the
mussels and set aside.
3. Heat the olive oil in a large pan (one which will fit all of your mussels!)
4. Next add the pesto and cook for about a minute until it has heated through, before adding the
mussels to the pan., Mix until coated in the pesto before placing the lid on the pan and cooking for
4–6 minutes, or until all of the mussels have opened.
5. Serve and enjoy garnished with some chopped basil.
