Cooking time: 5 mins

"Grilled Mussels presented in the half shell as an entree. Usually gone within minutes of coming out from under the grill."

  • Seafood
  • Mussels



  • 25 Fresh mussels in the shell (mid size are best I find if gathering yourself)
  • 25g melted butter
  • 2 cloves finely chopped garlic (optional)
  • 1/2 cup tasty grated cheese
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • Sweet chilli sauce
  • Dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  1. Scrub mussel shells then steam open in a large pot.
  2. Run cold water over mussels and open shells keeping the best half of the shell.
  3. Place the half shell on the oven tray with 1 debearded mussel on each shell.
  4. Drizzle melted butter (with optional garlic mixed in) over each mussel.
  5. Drizzle about a half tsp of Sweet Chilli Sauce onto 12 of the mussels and sprinkle the chopped Corriander over the sauce.
  6. Drizzle about a half tsp of wine over the rest of the mussels.
  7. Mix the breadcrumbs and cheese and sprinkle over the 25 mussels.
  8. Grill for about 5 minutes until the cheese melts and the crumb are golden brown.
  9. Plate up, and watch them vanish.
