For this recipe I specify these native mussels from New Zealand as they are my firm favourite. Though much larger than the European variety, they are tender and extremely tasty. In England many supermarkets sell them frozen. If you can’t find green-shell mussels, use a smaller variety – they’ll just be less decorative! This dish is a real eye-catcher served in the individual mussel shells.
