Well I know it sounds strange to leave mussels uneaten but sometimes there are a few too many even for Meester Graham! No problem...

How to Cook Left-over Mussels

  1. Allow the mussels to cool, remove them from the pan and place them in a colander or sieve (strainer) and wash thoroughly (to remove the taste of the sauce). Split the shells and throw away the empty halves, then arrange the mussels in their shells on a plate. Cover with cling film and keep in the fridge until you are ready to use them.
  2. Make a vinegar dressing (or, if you prefer, you can use a summer oil dressing). Finely chop a clove (or two) of garlic and sprinkle the pieces over the mussels. Spoon the vinaigrette over the mussels and eat them cold as a starter or an aperitif. They're tangy and delicious.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
The perfect way to embrace the taste of mussels as an aperitif is with a glass (or two) of Kir. Pour about 2 tablespoons of Crême de Cassis into a wine glass and fill with dry white wine straight from the fridge. Better still (if you can get it) is Crême de Pamplemousse Rose (pink grapefruit liqueur) or Crême de Pêche (peach liqueur). However, they're not something that's stocked by most stores.

Reviews of Left-over Mussels

Rating 5 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again May 12 2014
Incredible! I found some ready-cooked big green-lipped New Zealand mussels at my local supermarket so made them up using this recipe. We included them in a seafood buffet for our new neighbours and they disappeared just like that! Everybody just swooped on them and then asked if there were any more!! My husband, being a quiet hero, went to the shop and made another batch of vinaigrette with garlic pieces. Again, everything disappeared in double-quick time only this time we hid a few in the fridge for ourselves for later! Truly an amazing way to serve cooked mussels, whether they are your own left-overs or whether you have a kind husband who goes to the shop to get them for you!

This wonderful recipe for Fish Curry uses mackerel but in fact, any oily fish such as Herring, Salmon, Trout or Seer Fish would work just as well.

Monkfish is a firm fish, once called "the poor man's lobster" because its texture, when cooked properly, is really similar to lobster.
