Joan Collins’ Mussels
“I remember catching a show on the ‘box’ that featured diet tips from a well-known English actress, Joan Collins. Expecting not too much, I was pleasantly surprised by the setting, being the South of France, and the fact that dear Joan had a personal chef. They shopped in the abundant markets of Nice and prepared an interesting mussel recipe. Their version had no fat whatsoever.
“That was some time ago and I have cooked the meal a number of times since, each time improvising and embellishing the basic recipe according to what ingredients were around at the time.
“I hope you find this version, necessarily enhanced to our taste using the excellent Screaming Seeds Seven Seas Spice mix, to your liking.”
