Cheese, mayonnaise and seafood pair so well together and they are perfect match made in food heaven. I especially love it with shellfish such as green mussels. Frozen green mussels (imported from New Zealand) are topped with the rich, creamy, cheese mayonnaise sauce and then baked. When they are out of the oven, I love topping them with some Japanese fish roe or tobiko so every bite is also bursting with the wonderful flavors of the tabiko. Ah….so yummy.
These mussels are also called Mussels Dynamite and often served as an appetizer at Japanese restaurants or at Japanese seafood/sushi buffets. There is another similar dish called Shrimp Dynamite and I have the recipe. Every time I see these two items on the menu, I just have to pick them up and indulge myself in the creamy deliciousness.
Green mussels are readily available at the frozen section of many supermarkets, so you can make this Japanese appetizer in a jiffy. With the Labor Day weekend just a week away, you can serve this cheese-mayo baked mussels or mussel dynamite as an appetizer with your regular BBQ and meats. I am sure your guests would love you forever for pampering them with this utterly mouthwatering recipe.
