Mussels Clam Soup with Saffron

    A great starter for a sophisticated dinner with friends. I make my bouquet garni with parsley, thyme and bay leaves but sometimes I add other fresh herbs, such as chives.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 2 - 4

    • 200ml white wine, dry
    • 1 bouquet garni
    • 1kg mussels, washed and cleaned
    • 1kg clams, washed
    • 250ml single cream
    • A pinch saffron

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Add the white wine and the bouquet garni to a large pot. Then add mussels and clams. Bring to the boil - remove from heat when all the clams and mussels are open. Remove from the shell and set aside.
    2. Strain the cooking juices into a very fine strainer and transfer to a small saucepan (you probably won't need more than 500ml); cook on low heat and allow to reduce, about 15 minutes. Stir in cream and saffron.
    3. Add the clams and mussels into the soup. Serve immediately.
