Mussels are inexpensive, elegant, delicious, and easy to cook. If you have a bag of mussels, some butter, a little garlic, shallots, and a bottle of wine, dinner is on the table in 15 minutes. But why stop there?
There are infinite ways to cook mussels. You serve them steamed, sauced up, added to a seafood stew or paella, or tossed in pasta. One of my favorites is mussels in rich, perfectly seasoned tomato sauce with pasta *chefs kiss*.
