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 dozen 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 an egg and a 1/4 tsp 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.

The search function is handy but I think it pays to bring up the old favourites every now and then so everyone can share and discuss.

Bumping this as I tried Beakers suggestion and was wonderful. Definitely need to use raw mussels, the difference is amazing! I didnt use the tomato but added 1/2 pkt seafood soup mix ( so no salt needed)as per Fishers recipe on this forum and I used the chilli/fresh coriander combination from Beaker .And I agree that with a dozen mussels which are cheap, you have a great meal with a salad. :)
