  1. Wash your Mussels thoroughly and debeard, discarding any that are cracked, or that stubbornly stay open when tapped. Warm the Bread Rolls in a pre-heated oven.
  2. Warm a pan that will fit the mussels in comfortably and that has a well-fitting lid. Add the Mussels and cover, cooking on a high heat, stirring and shaking the pan occasionally.
  3. As the Mussels start to open, add the pot of Marinière Sauce, stir and re-cover. Bring the sauce to the boil and cook until all the mussels have opened. IMPORTANT:- Discard any that remain closed!
  4. Chop and Add the Flat Leaf Parsley. Serve into bowls immediately, accompanied by the warmed Bread Rolls
