Notes

This dish I have wanted to make for such a long time. i found it in an Icelandic News Paper back in 1992. Now that the Season for Mussels is in its highlits it´s just a great idea to make now. It´s a light and healthy meal and very easy to make.

As the name says it´s from the Southern Part of France.

Hope you will enjoy it!
