1st time I've subscribed to comment on a recipe....Have to say; I'm a Kiwi, and have made many a Mussel fritter in my time. It wasn't until I began cooking these, I realized I hadn't sautéed onions and garlic ; never having made them any other way! I loved the lightness of these and purity of taste. Quite delicious thank you...I doubled the recipe and will share them around tomorrow. xx

These are such a surprise and a fabulous brunch item! Not at all what I thought! Even picky DH kept talking about them 24 hours later, "you know, those mussel patties are really cool!" This from a man who normally won't eat a mussel! He said they looked delicious and couldn't resist! Made as directed, except I made 4 versus 6. Would definitely make 6 next time. Great flavors, and all I served them with were slices of lemon. Thanks, Kiwi Kathy! Made for Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap.

What delicate wee morsels these are. At last, mussel fritters that aren't like small, windowless buildings. Super easy, super taste, ingredients are spot on. I didn't have any basil, not overly fond of it anyway, so just added a good handful of flat leaf parsley. Mussels are cheap here and out of 2 dozen I got 8 fritters, a pot of mussel chowder and 1/2 litre of stock. Thankyou Kiwi Kathy for a great recipe, I next plan to make these for a party, I'll make them small and serve with a sour cream and sweet chilli dipping sauce. From one kiwi to another.
