  • Heat the frying oil to 150C. Fry the chips in batches for 4 to 5 minutes or just blonde and drain them on a paper towel, set aside and turn up the oil to 200C
  • In the meantime place a large pot on medium to high heat. Drizzle in some olive oil, when hot, add the onion to the pan, cook for a minute or so then add the bacon and cook until caramelised, then add the garlic, cook for another minute. Next add the mussels and give them a good stir.
  • Pour in 2 pouches of The Sauce By Manu red wine sauce, stir well. Put the lid on and cook for 5 minutes or until all the mussels are open and sprinkle with parsley.
  • To finish the chips add them back to the oil, cooking them in batches until they are golden brown and crispy, drain them on paper towel and sprinkle with salt.
  • Place the pot of mussels and chips on the table to share!
