Clams vs mussels

JerryMe | May 7, 201006:42 PM     23

Question - Clams are on sale and mussels are also on sale. How do they differ?

I've never cooked clams (but I've had them in restaurants) and I've never eaten mussels. I live in an arid desert so this is my first trip into shell fish, cooking at home.

If anyone has a luscious recipe for either, I would be most grateful.

SO doesn't do shell fish, so I think more for me! Which fishy is better as leftovers?
