Methods

Heat cooking oil in a large, pan with a lid. Add onion, celery

Stir in the wine, bring to the boil and bubble for 1 minute, then add the stock (if you do not have enough mussel stock from the pouch, then add fish or vegetable stock to top it up) and saffron. Bring everything to the boil.


Add in the tomatoes and orzo and simmer for another 5 minutes until orzo is almost cooked.


Tip in the mussels, cover and gently heat for a few minutes.


Stir in the creme fraiche, and sprinkle dill on top.
