Gluten Free Moules Mariniere

Moules Mariniere
This is another of those recipes that I created before being gluten free but haven't had to change, just like the fish pie. I've been making this naturally gluten free Moules Mariniere for years and it never disappoints. It's a simple meal with lots of flavour and it's very easy to make.

To serve 4 people.


2 kg Bag of Mussels
1 large Onion
6 Garlic Cloves
600ml Gluten Free Fish/Chicken Stock 
1 tin of peeled Plum Tomatoes
Generous pinch of Salt
Dry White Wine (I don't measure but would say it's around 200 - 300ml)
Large handful of fresh Parsley
Tablespoon of dried Parsley
1 tin salted Anchovies
2 tablespoons Olive Oil

  • Prepare the mussels for cooking
  • Chop the onions and fresh parsley, mince the garlic
  • Make the fish and chicken stock
  • Heat a large pan on high and add olive oil
  • Once hot add the onions, garlic and anchovies, stir and cook until the onion is soft but not browned
  • Add the dried parsley and stir
  • Add the tomatoes, fish stock and wine and stir
  • Add salt
  • Add your fresh parsley

Halfway There
  • Put the lid on and cook for 4 minutes, stirring once halfway through

Moules Mariniere In The Pot
  • The mussels should now be open and looking delicious!
Remember, don't eat any that haven't opened during cooking.

I find that if I buy my mussels from a supermarket the bag is much smaller than if I get them from my fishmonger, a supermarket bag may only feed two for a main course, so take that into account depending on where you are buying from and for how many.

This Moules Mariniere has the most gorgeous soupy base that is packed full of flavour. You may want to bake a DS gluten free crusty baguette to mop it up or you may do what I usually do, drink it with a spoon! Either way, it's delicious. The mussels come out melt in the mouth and so juicy, this is a lovely one pot meal that everyone can enjoy.
