How to Cook Blue Mussels
Blue mussels are popular around the world. These small shellfish are farm raised in the USA, Canada, Scandanavia and throughout Europe.
There are many ways to prepare and serve blue mussels. Some of the most common methods include steaming, baking, grilling or cooked in soups, stews, chowders or other meals.
In addition to serving mussels as a main course, they are a good choice as an appetizer. They can baked on the half shell, topped with a small slice of cheddar, Mozzarella, Feta, or other cheese and served before a main course.
Blue mussels are also popular as an ingredient in pasta dishes. They can be boiled (in the shell) with sauces and then served over pasta noodles.
