Jeff Brazier begins his dinner with the seafood classic moules mariniere on Celebrity Come Dine With Me
1. Heat the butter in a deep saucepan large enough to fit the mussels in. When it starts to sizzle add the onion, fennel, garlic and bay leaves and cook gently for 5-6 minutes, or until soft but not coloured.
2. Add the wine and tip in the mussels then cover and turn up the heat. Shake the pan every 30 seconds or so for 3-4 minutes, or until all the shells are opened.
3. Stir in the cream and lemon zest and warm through for a further minute. Divide the mussels between 4 warmed bowls, pour over the pan juices and sprinkle over the parsley before serving.
