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 approximately 1 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.
