  1. Begin by cleaning the mussels under running water to remove any dirt or debris. Be sure to discard any mussels that do not close when tapped or that remain open.
  2. In a large pot, bring 2 litres of water to a boil. Add 2 tbsp of salt and the cleaned mussels, and cook until they open, which should take approximately 5–7 minutes.
  3. Once the mussels have opened, separate them from their shells and set them aside.
  4. In a pan, melt Emborg Unsalted Butter over a low heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant for about 1 minute, and then season with pepper.
  5. Add the cooked mussels to the pan and stir to coat them with the garlic butter mixture you have just made.
  6. Sprinkle grated Emborg Red Cheddar over the mussels and let it melt, stirring occasionally.
  7. Once the cheese has melted, remove the pan from the heat and sprinkle 2 tbsp of chopped parsley and chili flakes (optional) over the top of the mussels.
  8. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve and enjoy!
