How to Cook Graham's Mediterranean Mussels
- Cook the mussels. Strain off all the liquid and solids retaining only the mussels. Set to one side to cool a little, then remove the shells.
- Cut the fennel in half (you'll only be using one half in this recipe). Slice it thin. Peel and chop the garlic. Drain the chick peas and rinse them in fresh water. Chop the chives and grate (shred) the zest from the lemon.
- Peel and chop the onion. Melt the duck fat in a large frying pan (skillet) and add the chopped onion. Cook gently for 5-6 minutes until translucent. Increase the heat a little and add the olive oil, garlic and fennel and sauté for about 4 minutes.
- Add the chick peas, white wine and lemon zest. Allow everything to come to the simmer, then add the shelled mussels. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Allow the mussels to come quickly back to heat (without further cooking) then sprinkle in the chopped chives and a pinch or two of chili flakes. Remove from the heat and serve immediately with crusty whole wheat bread.
GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
If you prefer to use flat leaf parsley in place of chives - no problem!

Amazingly tasty! I made it for a little lunch with 'the girls' and we washed it down with some chilled white wine. It was very good. Takes a bit of time but the result is worth it

The smoke, the sizzle, the aroma, yeah - it's time for BBQ but don't buy scrappy steaks if you want to eat like a king.
Indian food is now the most popular type of food takeaway in Britain. And not without reason because good Indian food is quite sublime.

Other Fish & Seafood Recipes
Though the octopus is cooked, the style is that of Carpaccio (finely cut meat or fish with a vinegar and olive oil-base dressing). Perfect for summer.
Julie's Salmon & Prawn with Lime is dedicated to Terry and Julie, our neighbours on The Isle of Man, who served us the most stunning starter ever.
Making risotto is a gentle process but it can be served with a variety of accompaniments... working particularly well in this recipe with monkfish
