When I set foot here in New Zealand I was introduced with this simple yet lovely appetizer called marinated mussels. It is a dish where mussels is marinated in a spice infused lemon and olive oil, served cold this is dish to pair with wine or even beer.
- Cook mussels by placing it in a streamer and cooked until shells have opened. Once cooked set aside to let it cool.
- Remove mussels from shells then set aside.
- In a large bowl combine olive oil, cider vinegar, tomato, Worcestershire sauce, lemon, parsley, red chillies, and garlic.
- Place in a container together with the mussels, making sure mussels are covered with the marinade. Chill before serving.
