How perfect is this recipe for a Summer BBQ? The ideal ingredients: beer, mussels and a barbie. Go forth and enjoy this delish Kiwiana seafood creation – oh and wow everybody at the same time.
Beer BBQ Mussels:
To cook these you’ll need a lidded pan suitable for barbecue use, or they can be cooked on a stove.
1 tablespoon oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 spring onions, diced, including green tops
24 fresh NZ mussels, scrubbed and beards removed
1 can of your favourite beer
Ground black pepper
Freshly chopped chives, parsley or coriander for garnish
Heat oil in pan and sauté garlic and spring onions for 1-2 minutes. Add mussels and pour over beer. Stir, cover with lid and cook until mussels have opened. Discard any that do not open. Season with pepper and sprinkle with finely chopped chives (or parsley, coriander).
Serve in individual bowls with fresh, crusty bread.
