Mussels with Garlic Butter

  1. Wash and check mussels thoroughly. Remove broken shells and discard the ones that do not close after a firm tap.
  2. Melt 60g of herb butter in a mussel or frying pan. Braise the leek and carrot in said pan for 3-4 minutes on low heat. Add wine, juniper berries and pepper to taste. Bring to the boil. Add the mussels into the pan and cook over a high heat with the lid on. Shake occasionally. Drain the mussels and put the herb butter in the pan. Shake the pan a few times until all the mussels are covered by butter.
