Food Facts

Mussels are sold live in net bags or frozen in the shells. If purchasing live mussels, tap shells lightly to make sure the shells close tightly. Mussels can also be bought individually at seafood markets.

How to Clean Mussels

Wash mussels under cold running water, pulling or scraping off the "beards" that are attached at the bottoms of the shells.

    The sauce was a little bland to eat with steamed rice. Next time I make this, I'll either add my own seasonings or serve it as an appetizer.

    Es facil y exquisita. Puse los mejillones sobre un plato con pasta. Todos quienes probaron este plato quedaron encantados. Y con la receta basica de la crema he hecho varias variaciones.
