Cooking with Coopers
This dish is so simple and so tasty. It combines the wonderful mussels from the West Coast of South Australia and Coopers Pilsner 1862. For plain and simple this dish just works, really, really well. In fact, a big bowl of these as an entree at a dinner party will definitely be a winner and best of all, it only takes 5 minutes to cook!
1 kg of South Australian Black Mussels
375mls of Coopers Pilsner '62
1 chilli, thinly sliced
1 leek thinly sliced
1 lemon, zested
Half a bunch of Tarragon, leaves picked
1 pinch of salt
Heat a heavy bottom saucepan with a fitting lid on the highest flame
possible for 15 minutes. When the pan has been on the heat for 15 minutes
add the mussels to the pan and then the Coopers Pilsner '62 straight after, then put
the lid straight on.
Cook and shake every now and then for 1-2 minutes until the mussels pop open. Throw away any that do not open because they are dead.
Remove the mussels from the pan and keep the cooking liquid.
To the cooking liquid add the leeks and chilli and cook down a little,
then add the cream, lemon zest and tarragon. Season to taste and pour back over the mussels.
Serve in a big bowl with plenty of Coopers Pilsner '62, paper towel
and crusty bread to soak up the juices at the end.
