Ingredients

  • 12 fresh mussels
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp Edmonds standard flour
  • ¼ tsp Edmonds baking soda
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp chopped parsley or coriander
  • Oil for shallow frying
  • Lemon wedges

Method

1. Open the mussels by pouring hot water over them in a bowl, or steaming them slightly in an open pan with a little water. Remove from the shells and clean, then chop finely or whiz in a food processor, leaving the mixture a little chunky.

2. With a fork, whisk together the egg, flour, baking soda, salt and pepper to taste and the herbs. Add the chopped mussels and chill the mixture for 1 hour if you have the time.

3. Heat the oil gently in a heavy-based frying pan and fry large tablespoons of the mixture until golden brown on both sides.

4. Drain on paper towels and serve with lemon wedges.
