This tasty carbohydrate controlled recipe will ensure you survive the party season, without packing on the pounds.
Place two cups of water in a pot over high heat. Once water is boiling add the muscles, and place on a secure lid. Cook on high for about 5 minutes, shaking the pot a few times during. Remove mussels from pot, discarding any that did not open, and leave to cool for around 5 minutes.
To create the salsa combine 1 clove of garlic, 1 ½ tbsp olive oil, half the butter, 1/3 cup parsley, mint, chives, capers, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a food processor, and blend until fine.
Using a fork, remove the mussels from their shells. Crush and chop the remaining two cloves of garlic. Place the remaining olive oil in a fry pan over high heat, add in the garlic and remaining butter. Once the butter is melted add the mussels and sauté for around 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and whilst still in the pan stir through the remaining shredded parsley.
To serve, spoon a little salsa verde into a single serve dish, and spoon on around three muscles with some of the garlic butter from the pan.
