>Mussels cooked on a wood fire / Brasucade de moules


A very simple dish, ideal for the barbecue.  /  Un plat très simple, idéal pour le barbecue.


1 kilo mussels / moules

100 gm lardons (bacon cubes)

thyme, garlic, savory, lemon / thym, ail, sariette, citron

Clean the mussels / Nettoyer les moules.

Cook the lardons in a large wide pan (I use a paella pan) until browned. /  Cuire les lardons dans une poele (j’utilise une poele à paella) jusqu’à ils soient dorés.

Add the thyme and the mussels and cook until the mussels are open (about 5-10 minutes).  / Ajouter le thym et les moules et les cuire jusqu’à elles s’ouvrent.

Serve garnished with chopped garlic and savory (or thyme) and pieces of lemon.  Quite a lot of liquid will come out of the mussels and this can be mopped up with crusty bread.  / Servir garnies de l’ail haché et sariette (ou thym), des morceaux de citron et du pain.
