Moules au curry

Moules au curry

Many people are scared of eating mussels. This version has converted many of my friends into true believers! As an added bonus It’s fast and easy to make 🙂


  • 1 kilo of fresh blue mussels
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 large onion
  • 1/4 Fennel
  • 1/4 bottle of white wine
  • curry powder
  • Cream
  • Salt & pepper

Start by thoroughly cleaning the mussels, discard any that are not closed (or don’t close if you tap them).

Chop the garlic, onion and fennel finely. Fry in a large pot together with a tablespoon of curry powder. Add the white whine.

Add the cleaned mussels and cover with a lid. Steam the mussels for about 3-5 minutes.

Strain out the broth and reduce for a couple of minutes, then add some cream and season with salt, pepper and some additional curry powder to taste.

Pour the broth back over the mussels and serve with bread…
