Mussels for Muscles

Recommended Posts

Ok not much of a recipe but I thought I'd post this up in case people hadn't thought about it. I make mussels often (last night in fact) and they're very low in fat and high in protein. Great clean food. I buy a kilo of mussels from Tesco for £3.80 and they're huge. If I buy them after work they tend to be on the bargain shelf before they die and they go down to about £1.80... bargain. I make two sauces:

1 small pot double cream

2 cloves of garlic

Splash of white wine

or

1 carton passata with basil

2 cloves of garlic

3 chopped bird eye chilies

Splash white wine

If your bulking then throw in a big chunk of tiger bread to go with it

I love em,just needs a good few on a couple of plates to get enough.

1kg works out at over 100g protein I believe. Perfect! Takes about 10 minutes to cook as well which is nice. Bloody pain in the @rse taking the beards off them first mind
