Pure New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels with Roasted Garlic, Sweet Chilli and Cheddar Crumbs
24 x Pure New Zealand Greenshell Mussels™
|1||medium bulb Roasted Garlic (chopped)|
|1/2 cup||Red Onion (finely diced)|
|1/2 cup||Sweet Chilli Sauce|
|1/2 cup||Cheddar Cheese (grated)|
|1/2 cup||Bread Crumbs|
|2 teaspoons||Parsley (finely chopped)|
1. For the topping, combine the roasted garlic, red onion, sweet chilli sauce, cheddar cheese, soft butter, bread crumbs, parsley and salt in a medium bowl and mix well. Form into a log approximately the same diameter as a 50 cent coin and place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
2. Place the thawed half shell mussels, flesh side up in a shallow baking tray. Remove the log mixture from the chiller and slice into 5mm disks. Place one disk onto each mussel and place under a hot grill for three to four minutes or until they start to brown – keep an eye on them!
3. When brown, remove and place on a platter or serving tray, sprinkle with more chopped parsley and finish with plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
