These are delicious, the batter is nice and crisp. I left out the fennel (don't like it). Prep and cooking times and servings are estimated

I must of tryed a heap of mussel fritter recipes in the past this has got to be the best. They are not as soggy in the middle as most recipes turn out, i must admit i did put 50/50 cornmeal/flour and y medium chopped mussel meat (500gms) no onion etc, cornmeal is the key. Thanks so much Doreen Bob Whitianga, Coromandel nz
