Garlic and Olive Oil BBQ Mussels

Nov 26, 2021Ben Slater
Quite possibly the easiest seafood dish you will ever make, These half-shell mussels on the BBQ will disappear quicker than you can cook them.

PRE TIME 30 minutes


  • 2KG Mussels in the shell
  • Lupi Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 12 Cloves Fresh Garlic (minced)


        1. Mix 1/2 cup of Lupi Extra Virgin Olive Oil with minced garlic, and place in the fridge for at least an hour.
        2. Using a sharp knife, separate the mussel into two halves, slicing the mussel itself in two.
        3. Spoon approx. 1 tsp of the Olive Oil and garlic mixture into each half shell
        4. Pre-heat your BBQ flat-plate to medium heat and place the mussels, shell down. Leave for 4-5 minutes to steam and then slightly crisp up.
        5. Serve the mussels in the half-shell, as a spare shell can be used to scoop the mussels out. Drizzle more Lupi Extra Virgin Olive Oil over the top of the mussels for even more decadence.
