I’ve been eating this dish since I was a child. My mother would always serve mussels in this way and hers were probably from a tin. Cod roe was another thing she used to slice and serve fried on toast. Hence I don’t know if I’m alone in having this as my mum is Danish or maybe everyone eats this, please let me know!
All I know is that I love Moules Marinière and this is like an unshelly cheats version on toast. Food doesn’t have to be complicated to taste good and this dish is a prime example of this
My inspiration for blogging this dish is Jacqueline at Tinned Tomatoes and her No Croutons Required challenge which is sandwiches this month then on checking the small print I read it had to be vegetarian! So here it is anyway, you can’t keep a good dish down!
- 240g Pack fresh mussels
- 1-2 Garlic Cloves, crushed
- 20g Butter
- 2 Slices of wholemeal bread
- 2 Slices of lemon, partially cut down the middle
- Heat the butter and garlic in a frying pan.
- Put the bread in your toaster to toast.
- On a medium heat add the mussels and fry turning regularly for about 3 minutes until heated through.
- Butter the toast and divide the mussels between the 2 slices of toast.
- Decorate with the lemon which you squeeze onto the mussels.
