How to prepare

Surprise yourself with mussels! They’re easy to use in all kinds of dishes. Think of a paella with mussels, a mussel springroll or even mussel quesadilla’s. This delicious recipe is best to be served with sour cream, tomato salsa and guacamole. 

Preparation

  • 1 For the salsa, mix the tomatoes with the red onion, garlic, chili pepper, coriander, lime juice and salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • 2 For the guacamole, prune the avocado. Mix in the onion, coriander, lime and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • 3 Let the mussels drain or pat dry them with kitchen paper. Put some flour over the mussels and make sure they are all covered with a thin white layer. Shake off excess flour. Make a mix of paprika, cumin and garlic powder in a small bowl. Repeat the first step again, but with the spice mix. Heat the butter in a frying pan and fry the mussels for 3-4 minutes until they are golden brown. Set the mussels aside.
  • 4 Heat a tortilla in a second frying pan and top with cheese, spring onions, fried mussels, jalapeño and a little lime zest.
  • 5 Place another tortilla on it and let the cheese melt. Turn the quesadilla carefully and cook until both sides are crispy.
  • 6 Serve with crème fraîche, tomato salsa and guacamole.
