Last month, I went on a short trip to Paris to celebrate my birthday.
Every time I am in Paris, I would never pass up an opportunity to have my favorite mussels pot, where loads of mussels are steamed with white wine, garlic, parsley, and serve with French fries.
Now that I am back, I couldn’t stop thinking about those briny and juicy mussels.
So, I went to Costco, bought a 5-lb pack of mussels and developed this easy steamed mussels recipe.
To make it into a complete meal, I just cooked some spaghetti, then ladled the mussels and sauce over it.
The end result was restaurant quality dinner that even little G approved.
Some people don’t like mussels, probably because of bad experiences with stale mussels.
Yes, they are really nasty when they are dead.
So it’s important that you check each mussel to make sure that both shells are tightly closed together, with no open gaps.
If so, toss away the mussels as they would ruin the entire pot.
Other than that, mussels are one of my favorite shellfish.
They are really good!
