The Best Recipes Using Mussels

You will find mussels in plenty of tasty seafood recipes. They are a popular addition to Spanish paella, as well as Italian cioppino and other Mediterranean recipes. Mussels can also be steamed and served by themselves, or with some crusty baguette bread to mop up the amazing juices. Mussels pair well with flavors such as lemon, white wine and parsley, or they can be showcased with coconut, lime and even chilies in Thai recipes. You can use fresh, canned or thawed mussels, but choose the fresh kind over all else if available. Mussels offer a sweet, distinctive and light flavor.

More about Mouthwatering Mussels

Mussels come in orange and white, although there is barely a difference in flavor. The orange ones are mature females while the white ones are immature females or males. Try mussels in appetizers or soups, serve them in their shells or remove them from the shells and toss them with pasta and perhaps some shrimp too, before adding your favorite marinara sauce. Served chilled, at room temperature or hot, mussels always offer an amazing taste. The next time you want to enjoy a seafood recipe, pick up some fresh mussels, and enjoy these incredible treats of the ocean in all their glory.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
