Ingredients 7
Time 00:15
  • 85
    tin smoked mussels, drained
  • 5
    slices wholegrain bread
  • 1
  • 1/2
    red chilli, finely chopped
  • zest and juice of ½ a lemon
  • 15
    chopped parsley
  • milled black pepper


Trim the crusts off the bread. Flatten the slices of bread with a rolling pin. Cut into triangles. Set aside.

Mash the avocado with the lemon zest and juice, chilli, parsley and season with pepper.

Preheat the oven grill. Place the bread triangles on a baking tray and grill until golden and crisp.

Spoon a little avocado mix onto each toast triangle, top with two smoked mussels and serve immediately.

Cook’s Notes:
•    This recipe is great for a crowd. A couple of cans of smoked mussels can feed up to 20 guests
•    For a wheat-free alternative, use 100% rye bread instead of wholegrain
•    You can make the avo mix up to 3 days in advance. Keep refrigerated
