    Mussels

    I just had mussels for the first time and they were soooo good...just ate them plain, dipped in their own broth. They looked disgusting so I was a little scared, but I'm a big-time sushi connoisseur so I'm used to scary seafood lol. Anyone eat them any other way besides plain? I felt like they really didn't need anything. They were just a cheap kind from Fry's too...good stuff, guys

    Cioppino... YUM! They are also used a lot in traditional Sicilian food... or at least in *my* family's traditional Sicilian food LOL But I have to admit, my favorite is your way.... lots of garlic and butter in the broth and YUMMO!

    I love mussels! They're great steamed in coconut milk. Here is an example recipe: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...lk-recipe.html (though I haven't cooked this exact one).

    The steamed mussels recipe in the free reader-created cookbook is pretty close to a dish my family makes, except there's no tomato. So it's garlic, white wine, well mostly that, hehe. Used to sop up the broth/brine with bread or rice, now I just drink it straight.

    At the restaurant I used to work we served them in a compound Bagna cuda butter made with garlic, anchovies, chili peppers, parsley, and olive oil.

    Cook in white wine covered till they open, toss in some seasoned tomatoes and eat once warm. Mussels are fantastic!

    I do them this way. Beer once in a while, like this, is not going to hurt!
