I am told that this is the number of mussels you’ll need to buy for a typical family. But mussels can be expensive. Mussels are a very fussy eat, and the best way to ensure they are fresh is to buy them the day you intend to cook them. This is the same for every other part of a meal. I suggest you buy mussels the day they are off the boat.
Mussels are a relatively new discovery in the US, dating back to the early 1960s when someone discovered that they could eat them without becoming shellfish. Mussels are a relatively healthy food, but they’re fickle, so they can easily be spoiled. This is to be expected. A lot of people buy mussels when they are fresh, as their shells are so delicate.
The problem with buying mussels the day they are off the boat is that they are expensive. I once purchased a bunch of them in New York’s Central Park while waiting for a friend to show up. The fact that I was sitting in the middle of Central Park with my friend was a major contributing factor to me paying a lot of money for them. Mussels can easily go from the shop to the table and back again if they are not cleaned properly and with the right care.
Some of the mussels come from the sea, others are just discarded. I’ve used an antique Chinese mussel shell as a base for my wine and also found it to be a pretty good weapon. I’m now using it as a base for my other wine. I would definitely try to find it again if it ever comes in handy.
Im not sure how many pounds of mussels are needed to be a good cook, but I do know that mussels are a great way to kill a lot of mosquitoes.
With so many ways to cook and kill mosquitoes, it’s quite likely that a lot of the mussels will be eaten, but only one or two will be killed. Some people choose to cook them in the shell, some throw them in their pasta, some use them raw. I have found that in addition to its many uses, mussels can be incredibly tasty with a couple of simple additions.
In a very small pinch, you can make a mussel dish out of frozen mussels. While they are frozen they have a chance to thaw out and come to life at room temperature. They are delicious, and you can also make them into a sort of seafood stew. Just throw them in a pot of water and add some pasta or noodles, some veggies, and some spices.
Mussels are a great easy-to-find and easy-to-use protein source. In fact, mussels are one of the easiest fish to cook. Just throw them in boiling water and boil them for 10 minutes.
My wife and I cooked mussels about a dozen times last year. Every single time we made them we used a pot, so we decided to do a comparison of the various recipes. I found mussels to be an easy-to-make, simple, flavorful, filling fish, and I really enjoyed them. The same goes for roe, a tasty, rich fish that is often used as a substitute for mussels.
