NZ Greenshell Mussels with Garlic Butter
print recipe


  • 12 New Zealand Greenshell Mussels – half shell
  • 150gms Butter (softened but not melted)
  • 1 medium Fresh Garlic Clove (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Italian Parsley (finely chopped)
  • To season Flaky Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper

Serves 2


In a suitable mixing bowl mix the butter, garlic & parsley. Pre heat the oven to a medium heat (approx 160°C / 320°F). Set the half shell mussels on to a suitable baking tray with sides (to stop any juice from spilling). With a teaspoon evenly distribute the butter mixture on top of all the mussels. Place into the oven & allow to bake for approx 5-7 minutes, or until all the mussels are evenly hot. Remove from the tray on to a suitable service plate or tray, any juices from the mussels can be used to baste the mussels prior to service. Garnish with fresh Italian parsley & serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over the top.
