Mussels. I love them. Muscles, too. I digress.
My Mom and I have mussels all the time. One of our favourite spots to go to, especially après-work, is the Beer Bistro. Their mussels are out of control delicious, and come with a side of sough dough bread. But, at $18.50 a bowl, I needed a cheaper way to get my fix.
Last spring I moved to Corktown and started shopping at the St. Lawrence Market on most Saturdays. When I had some extra time, I found a fish market called Domenic’s that had fresh mussels, still in the water. WHAT! I knew I needed to scoop some out and give “mussel making” a whirl.
White wine is my friend, and I tend to have a glass while making this, so here is my recipe for simple, yet scrumptious mussels. I highly recommend getting all ingredients as fresh as possible, with the perfect loaf of crusty bread. Enjoy!
