Mussels vs. Clams

Jeanne | Mar 31, 2011 01:56 AM

I love seafood - almost all seafood. I've tried all types of shrimp, crabs, lobster, crayfish, all types of fish, oysters, clams, mussels, squid, octopus, and probably some I don't remember with sushi/sashimi. My problem is I really don't like mussels - I can eat a few but that's about it. I see all these wonderful steamed mussel recipes - I would love to try the recipes but I'd like to use clams instead. I think this would be fine with the recipes I've seen - which are basic steamed recipes with broth, herbs, etc. Any opinions?

Which do you prefer? And why?
