Cheap, plentiful, and native to our shores, mussels are one of the most sustainable types of fish or seafood you can find. Plus, it helps that they are delicious! Here are 3 recipes that show off their versatility.
TIP: To clean mussels, plunge them in a basin of cold, running water, scrubbing the shells well or rubbing them briskly against each other to get them nice and clean. Pull off the hairy ‘beards’. Discard any that have broken shells, or that do not close tightly when tapped. Don’t let them stand in water – they will open and lose their natural juices.
