  • 500g pack mussels in creamy sauce (find these in the chilled aisle)
  • 1l strong, hot fish stock (we used Knorr Touch of Taste concentrate)
  • 500g floury potatoes, cut into sugarcube-size pieces
  • 200g mixed fish
  • small bunch flatleaf parsley


Pre-packed mussels
Vacuum-packed mussels are available in most supermarkets. They come in a creamy moules marinière-type sauce; perfect for adding to soups and pastas. Make sure to discard any shells that are not open


  1. Drain the sauce from the mussels into a large saucepan and add the stock. Tip in the potatoes, cover and bring to the boil. Once boiling, take off the lid and simmer for about 12 mins or until the potatoes are very tender.

  2. Meanwhile, cut the fish into large chunks and roughly chop the parsley. Stir the fish and mussels into the soup, then bring back to a simmer for about 3 mins or until the fish has changed colour and flakes easily. Stir in most of the parsley, then serve scattered with the rest of the parsley and eat with crusty bread.
