How to make it

  • Place mussels and water in pan, cover and cook until mussels open
  • (if one uses halfshell mussels, skip this step)
  • Take out of pot and put aside. Retain 250ml of the "mussel" water.
  • Take mussels out of shells, and mince the meat. Throw away the "stringy' bits
  • You can also keep a few whole for more texture
  • Heat the butter in a saucepan and fry the onions and garlic for a few minutes.
  • Take off the heat, and mix with the flour and then the "mussel" water, fish stock and wine.
  • Stir over medium heat until soup thickens.
  • Add parsley and bay leaf en add pepper and nutmeg to taste.
  • Add salt if necessary (Mussels have enough salt)
  • Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add mussels and cream and heat without boiling.
  • Enjoy
