2, 3 and 4-oven AGA
Transfer the uncovered pan to the Simmering Oven for 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, place on the Simmering Plate while you stir the rice, then tuck the cleaned, closed mussels into the rice, and return to the Simmering Oven for 10-15 minutes (the mussels will open on cooking – discard any that do not). Meanwhile cook the prawns in a little oil for 3-4 minutes until pink and boil the peas. Take the pan from the oven and stir in the peas, check seasoning and place the prawns on the top, cover the pan with a lid and leave to stand for 5 minutes. Serve from the pan with chopped parsley and lemon wedges.
