Discard any mussels that are damaged or that remain open when tapped. Spray a large saucepan with low fat cooking spray. Add the spring onions and garlic and cook gently for 2-3 minutes.

Add the parsley, Pernod (or Vermouth) and stock. Simmer for 5 minutes without a lid.

Tip the mussels into the saucepan and cover with the lid. Steam for 4-5 minutes, shaking the pan from time to time. Discard any mussels that fail to open, then share them between four bowls and serve with the liquid spooned over.
