Mussels with white wine sauce


For the sauce

• 1 head of fennel

• 500ml of white cooking wine

• 500ml of double cream

• 2 gloves of garlic – peeled

• 2 shallots peeled and roughly chopped

For the mussels

• 1 leek (julienned)

• 1 handful of chopped parsley

• 2 shallots finely diced

• 15 Brancaster mussels (cleaned)


In a saucepan place your fennel, garlic, shallots and white cooking wine. Place on the stove and reduce by half. Add your double cream and bring your mixture back up to the boil. Once boiling, remove from the heat and pass through a sieve into a separate saucepan. Place to the side whilst preparing your mussels.

Place your cleaned mussels, shallots and leeks into the white wine sauce. Place onto the stove with a lid on the saucepan. Once your mussels appear to open they are cooked. Next add your chopped parsley.

Serve in a bowl, top with parsley and serve with some crusty bread.
