Combining Galician mussels with cream or cheese sauces isn’t very common in Spain, but there are recipes in this style in Belgian and Breton cuisine for example. A touch of mustard and the coriander lighten the dish, adding freshness. What’s more, both the Camembert cheese and the coriander are enhanced by the aromas of a Cava de Guarda Brut.

Ingredients

1 kg Mussels, cooked, shell on (PDO Mejillón de Galicia)
250 g Camembert
280 g Single cream
16 g Dijon mustard
Fresh coriander

Instructions

1
Remove the rind from the Camembert, add the cream and bring to the boil.
2
Remove from the heat, and allow to infuse for 30 minutes.
3
Then add the mustard and blend.
4
Arrange the mussels on a serving platter, cover with the sauce and add a small coriander leaf to each for a hint of freshness.

We recommend dehydrating the coriander in the oven for 12 hours at 60ºC and then blending it with oil to make a coriander oil. Impress your guests with a dish they might find in a fine dining restaurant!
