Baked mussels

Simple to make mussels baked with cheese.

Baked mussels with cheese


• 50 ml of olive oil

• 1 kg fresh mussels 

• handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped

• 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

• 6 tbsp Mayonnaise

• 150 g cheese (mozzarella, cheddar,...)

• 2 tbsp Parmesan, freshly grated


• Preheat the oven to 200°C

• Clean and scrub the mussels under the running water

• In a large pot, add about 50 ml of water and the cleaned mussels.  Cook on the stove with a lid on, on high until the water boils. Lower the temperature to medium and cook for about 3 minutes. Check the pot to see if there are any unopened mussels, shake the pot, and using a spatula push the unopened ones to the bottom of the pot (closer to the heat). Put the lid back on and cook for about 2-3 more minutes, until all the mussels open.

If there are any unopened mussels left, throw them away

• Drain the mussels and align the shells with mussels on a baking tray

• In a small bowl, combine together 50 ml of olive oil with chopped parsley and garlic

• Stuff each mussel shell with a tsp of mayonnaise, sprinkle with cheese and grated parmesan, and then top with olive oil, garlic, and parsley mix

• Bake for about 5-10 minutes, until the cheese, gets a nice golden color

Enjoy ❤️
