Mussels with bacon and wine


Serves 4 | Prep 15 mins | Cook 15 mins | Calories 678 (per serving)

1kg (2lb 2oz) mussels 1 tbsp olive oil 1 shallot, peeled, finely chopped 200g (7oz) unsmoked bacon medallions, roughly chopped 2 garlic cloves, peeled, thinly sliced 100ml (3½floz) dry white wine 15g (¾oz) fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped 4 x 50g (1¾oz) slices of gluten-free sourdough bread

1 Clean the mussels under running water, removing any beards. If any mussels are open, tap them lightly on your kitchen counter. If they stay open, discard them.

2 Put the oil in a large pan and fry the shallot and bacon over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for a further minute.

3 Pour in the wine and simmer for 1 minute. Add the mussels, then cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the mussels have opened, shaking the pan every now and then. Discard any mussels that stay shut and, using a slotted spoon, transfer the remainder to a large bowl and cover to keep warm.
