  • 1 KG Mussels
  • 75 G Serrano Ham chunks
  • 1/2 Onion
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • Pimenton Dulce
  • Sweet Wine
  • Parsley


1. Dice your onion and garlic into very fine pieces and place these in a large pan with a splash of olive oil until soft and translucent.

2. When you see these are softening up add the serrano ham chunks and a teaspoon of pimenton dulce. Stir this in with the soft vegetables and pour a generous splash of sweet wine, in this case i used sweet orange wine.

3. Rise your mussels and add in to the pan with the mixed ingredients, stir in and leave in a covered pan for 5 – 10 minutes until you see that all your mussels are open and the meat inside is tender.

4. Pour into a large dish, ensuring to cover with the juices left in the pan and cover sparingly with parsley.

Serve this with some crusty bread and you’re onto a winner.
