Amuse Gueule....Mussels, Feta & Chili On A Shell.

Amuse Gueule is a one bite affair, one mouthful situation! Something to tickle your appetite with. So today I would like to share with you mussels with feta cheese and chili on a shell. When we buy fresh mussels I always keep the big, nice looking shells, they are washed and sterilized for situations like this when frozen mussels are being used. .

Serves many at a party:
-  500 gms of frozen mussles thawed.
-  100 gms of soft feta cheese.
-  A tomato sauce made with lots of garlic,
-  Fresh ginger cut in pieces.
-  Finely chopped chili.

Method:
Empty Mussel Shell

-  Mash the feta, with the chili  pepper and some olive oil.
-  Add a spoonful of sauce in the mussel. shell.
-  Place one or two mussels in the tomato sauce.
-  Place one piece of the ginger.
