Chef’s tips & techniques

  • Partially remove the mussel shells before serving for ease of eating.
  • Make sure all elements are well mixed for maximum flavour.
  • You can also use penne pasta and spaghetti if you can’t find mezzanelli.
  • Nutritional tip: Did you know? Olives are a rich source of Vitamin E. 
  • Chef Mark’s top tip: “To avoid the garlic from burning, add it after the mussels.”
