Baked Mussels with Spinach and Cheese Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (250 ml) dry white wine
  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh shallots
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 4 sprigs parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 pounds (960 g) green mussels, sorted and cleaned
  • For the Stuffing:
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups chopped spinach
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

Method

Step 1

In a large pot, combine dry white wine, 2 tablespoons of shallots, cracked black pepper, parsley sprigs, bay leaf, and chopped fresh thyme. Stir well, then bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

Step 2

Add mussels to the pot, cover and steam until just opened, for about 2-3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove steamed mussels from the pot and set aside.

Step 3

Using a strainer lined with several layers of cheesecloth, strain the cooking liquid. Reserve and set aside.

Step 4

In a heavy-based pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the remaining shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, for about 3-4 minutes. Stir in 2 cups chopped spinach, then cover the pot and cook until spinach wilted. Uncover the pot and continue cooking until the liquid from the spinach evaporated, for a further 3-4 minutes.

Step 5

Pour in 1/2 cup (125 ml) of strained liquid and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture almost dry, for about 5 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream and cook for another 10 minutes. Stir in chopped parsley, then season to taste with salt and black pepper.

Step 6

Heat the broiler. Make a bed of rock salt on a baking sheet. Arrange mussels on the baking sheet, then spoon the spinach mixture over. Top with grated Parmesan cheese. Broil for 4-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
