If you like the traditional Belgian mussels and chips, and you like new culinary experiences, then nothing beats a good dish of Irish mussels cooked in Irish Cider (Mussels in Irish Cider). Produced from local breeding, the Irish mussel is a little gustatory marvel that works wonderfully with cider! To be discovered in any good Irish pub or restaurant!
Mussels cooked in cider, cream and shallots. That’s all it takes to make us salivate! This dish, called “Mussels in Irish Cider” has the advantage of bringing together 3 great Irish specialities: its mussels, its local potatoes turned into chips and of course its inimitable cider!
Irish people enjoy this dish at home, like at the Pub or in a seafood restaurant. Very economical, its preparation does not exceed 10€ at home, and can be tasted in establishments for 10/12€.
The whole thing is obviously accompanied by a pint of cider, and some homemade “French fries” to enhance the flavours of the dish! A treat that combines sweet and savoury flavours! A clever mix between the acidity of the apple and its sugar which contrasts marvellously with the sweetness and generosity of the mussel flesh!
In short, a good little dish from behind the bundles, to be tasted in the Irish style, preferably in an establishment facing the sea for more cachet!
