Whilst you can use both a Gas or Charcoal Weber BBQ for this recipe;

  • Cooking Tongs/ Wok Tools


  • Set up your BBQ for indirect roasting on a medium-high heat

  • Fry the chorizo until coloured and oils released.
  • Remove from pan and place on kitchen roll to absorb some of the fat.

  • Fry shallots until tender and coloured
  • Add tomatoes and garlic
  • Cook indirectly for 2-3 minutes
  • Add mussells, wine and 150ml of double cream.
  • Stir evenly to coat and put the lid on your dutch oven.

  • Let the mussells cook indirectly on a medium heat for 6-8 minutes
  • Cook chips indirectly (on a separate BBQ if you have one or failing that in the oven in your kitchen at home).

  • Remove mussels from dutch oven and place in a large pan and keep in a warm place.
  • Add your chorizo and another 150ml of double cream the dutch oven and bring your sauce to the boil.
  • Simmer for 2-3 minutes.

  • Dish up your mussels in a nice big bowl and drizzle over a generous serving of sauce.
  • Serve your frites in seperate bowl on the side and tuck in!
  • Be sure to discard any mussells that have not opened during the cooking process.
  • We recommend some thickly sliced french bread on the side to dip into all the lovely sauce, Delicious!
