Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Lime wedges, plus jasmine rice.Pot-ready (uncooked) mussels have been scrubbed and had most of the beards removed. They are available from the seafood counter of most supermarkets or your local fishmonger. If unavailable, scrub mussels in a large sink full of cold water with a firm brush. Hold the beard (furry part around the opening) close to the shell and gently tug until it comes off.

Start eating better than ever!
