- For the garlic and chilli butter, mix the butter, garlic, chillies and herbs in a large glass bowl. Season with salt and pepper and continue mixing well. Spoon the butter onto a piece of cling film, roll it into a log shape, twist the ends and pop into the fridge to set.
- Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6
- For the mayonnaise, cut a square of kitchen foil big enough to wrap the garlic in a single layer. Put the garlic on the foil, drizzle over the olive oil, sprinkle with the thyme and season with pepper and ½ teaspoon of salt. Seal the parcel and roast for 20–25 minutes.
- Next, put the egg yolks, mustard and vinegar into a food processor and blend slowly pouring in the sunflower oil with the motor running, until a mayonnaise is formed. You may not need all the oil. Next, squeeze the roasted garlic out of its skin into the mayonnaise and blend again
- Discard any mussels and clams that fail to close when you tap them against the side of the sink. Put them and all the other shellfish in a large baking tray. Cut the butter log into thin slices and dot it over the shellfish. Roast for 15–20 minutes, again, discarding any mussels and clams that fail to open.
- Meanwhile, for the soda bread, put the gram flour in a large bowl. Add the salt and olive oil, then gradually pour in enough water to make a batter with the consistency of double cream. Heat a medium frying pan and add a glug of oil. Pour in a little of the batter to make a layer around 0.5cm/1/4in thick. Cook for 1–2 minutes, turn over, then cook for another 2 minutes. Keep warm, and repeat the cooking until all the batter has been used up.
- To serve, plate the shellfish on a large platter, sprinkle with parsley and serve with the garlic mayonnaise and some freshly sliced bread.
