We like diving into a bowl of mussels from time to time at restaurants that do the proper job with them. During the Covid crisis we have rediscovered how easy, cost effective, and delish these mollusks can be when prepared at home. Our two pound bag of PEI mussels cost us $4 and change the other day on special at a local market. More than enough for us. So far we have prepared them with a capicola based sauce with onions, white wine, a little cream, fresh herbs; and Provencal-style. Add some good rustic bread for dunking, and a chilled bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, and you are in foodie heaven. There are so many options here. What are your favorites ways to enjoy mussels?
