Moules Frites

This past summer when Catherine and I were in Courseulles-sur-Mer (Juno Beach) we ate an awesome helping of Moules Frites (mussels with fries).  At the time we talked that we should try to recreate the dish at home.  It’s not something that I’d make just for myself, but mom and dad came over yesterday so it seemed like as good a time as any to give it a try.

Nice big musells in the pot

I picked up some really nice Saltspring Island mussels and used a small amount of leftover chorizo sausage to spice up the broth.  The spiciness definitely was different than the ones we had in France which had strong rosemary and other herb flavours, but no one was complaining.   For a first try, I was happy with the result, but it was too bad Catherine wasn’t here to eat more than her share.

Ready to dig in

  1. Um… I’m totally psyched to have dinner at your house. Just saying. Absolutely beautiful meal. I hope you had a lovely time with your parents.

  2. Nice work! Thanks for that 🙂 Great portrait and the food looks great too! I am more of a herb-flavour traditionalist, but glad you are branching out with the chorizo.
