There is a trick to Mussel fritters, shell them live do not steam open its actually quite easy once you get the knack. Then cut each Mussel into 3 pieces and put in a bowl for each dozem good sized mussels add a finely chopped onion, a finely chopped tomato and a handful of chopped herbs like basil and corriander. I add crushed garlic and chilli but thats optional then add 2 or 3 tablespoons of flour and a good pinch of baking powder. I sometimes add a pinch or two of curry powder too. Then stir well and fry in a mix of rice bran oil and butter. small ones for finger food or a nice big fritter for a meal. Mussels are really fat and perfect for this recipe right now.

We went to the Havelock Mussel Festival. Richard Till did a cooking demonstration and made Mussel Fritters. He told the group that you should always use raw mussel meat in the fritter, because if you steam them first, then cook the fritters, you're cooking the mussel meat twice and it ends up tough. Here's the link to Richard's Mussel Fritter recipe

This is a lovely recipe!

nom, nom, the boys have been fishing and in the back of the boat was a sugar sack, I thought they had got some mussels but no pine cones;( would love a feed of them, although they have caught heaps of snapper, I am abit sick of it.
