Your FFT Fish & Sauce kit will include:

  • 1kg of Rope Grown Cornish Mussels
  • 400g Spicy Tomato Sauce
  • Further ingredients required to make this recipe:

  • 250g Spaghetti
  • 20g Flat Leaf Parsley


  • Shellfish
  • Sulphites
  • Molluscs
  • Wheat (Gluten)


  1. Wash your Mussels thoroughly and de-beard them, discarding any that are cracked, or that stubbornly stay open when tapped.
  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add the spaghetti. Give it a good stir and boil for approximately1 minute less than you would normally cook it for (around 9 minutes- it should be “Al Dente”). Stir occasionally to prevent it sticking.
  3. Warm a separate saucepan, big enough to take both the mussels and spaghetti. Place the mussels inside and place a lid on top. As the mussels start to pop open, add the spicy tomato sauce and give everything a good shake and stir.
  4. When the pasta is cooked, drain and add the pasta to the sauce and mussels on a low heat.
  5. Finely chop your parsley.
  6. To serve, divide the pasta and mussels between two bowls, spooning over the remaining sauce and garnish liberally with chopped parsley.
