Mussels love them! in garlic and white wine with lovely bread or in Belgium, Moules Frites. Big pot of them with fries...yum.

Moules frites - one of my favourites, especially when accompanied with freshly baked rustic bread and a crisp white wine. Mmmmmm!

I see I am being maligned again (what's the usual payout for libel these days?) :lol:


If it is Tomvet Gill, I'd hold out for 3 cows, a pig and 2 lambs! :lol:


Our Gill is not into terrestrial animals, her affection for the aquatic species is more than well documented!


Thanks for the advice, Geoff! :lol: Don't deny that, Tom (although always in a ladylike way - and in the presence of 'witnesses' - which makes me a good girl!) , so just watch it! :evil: :lol:

They are what my hubby always loves as a starter... I love the sauce and dip some of his bread in it, but just can't bring myself to chew and swallow a mussel.

Ever tried Sewin? Don't worry it has fins and doesn't live in a shell, BUT, is only available for a short season!!!! It's delicious. :)


Never heard of Sewin, is it like haddock?

The best fish we have ever had, including mussels for hubby. was on two land based holidays in Jersey. We returned both years to two of the amazing restaurants there, at St Helier. Wonderful :thumbup:

It's a sea trout Trace. A light pink coloured flesh when cooked and with a more subtle and delicate flavour than salmon. Delicious!! It's available around here, if you know how, ;) sometimes on the local market fish stall as well, but much less available than years ago when a parcel, wrapped in brown paper, used to land on my MIL's doorstep. :o from a certain source of hers.

Good grief Avid, are you suggesting it may have been poached in more ways than one!

According to family tales, and a long, long time ago when times were hard, my grandfather was a gamekeeper and apart from the odd game bird (no, not me, Tom!) I heard that swan was once 'on the menu'!
