Chilli Mussels and Fries

Chilli Mussels and Fries

We’re not sure there ’s a recipe that says summer holiday more so than these chilli mussels and fries. These moules frites are best enjoyed when the sun is shining with the sound of the ocean in the background, preferably cooked and served by someone else. For when you can’t get away, here’s our Mexican version with a hint of smoky spice (apologies to the French purists).

As a starter before these chilli mussels and fries try serving this tuna tostada recipe and accompany the moules frites with this courgette salad.
