1 red onion, finely diced
5ml chopped garlic
1 red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
330ml dry cider
2kg mussels, well cleaned
salt and pepper
60ml chopped parsley
In a large pot, melt the butter and gently fry the onion and garlic until soft.
Add the chilli and cook for a few seconds.
Stir in the flour and cook for a minute.
Stir in the cider and bring to the boil. Add the mussels and seasoning.
Cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes, shaking the pot occasionally until the mussels have opened. Discard any unopened mussels.
Spoon into bowls with some of the cooking juices and scatter over the parsley.
Serve with soda bread.
