Mussel Recycling

I love mussels. We don't make them enough at home. Considering how easy they are, that's truly a shame. But I learned something important about how to properly eat mussels yesterday. Thought I would share, so that you, too, can avoid being accused of poor mussel etiquette.

The Post article includes a few recipes for mussels, and Serious Eats has a really interesting recipe (that also includes clams, but I'd probably skip those) that has chorizo -- freakin' yum! -- and white beans. That sounds like a winner.

I made cioppino with mussels (among many other seafoodish items) the other day and it was sooooo good.

Reminded me how excellent mussels are.

Tonight mussels and pasta!

The reason we don't make them enough is that I really only like to get them from a trusted source and we just don't make it to my favorite seafood purveyor - Penn Ave Fish Company - very often these days. (big sigh)
