Hello mimiang, There is a very special way to cook them outside specific to the area of France where I live, called "eclade". Mussels are put on a square wood, heads (smaller side) looking up and covered with old pine needles. It is the main difficulty : you need about half a meter of pine needles to cover the mussels. You eat them with bread and salt butter. It is a bit dirty -- they are plenty of ash -- but delicious. You will find many photos of eclades in this webpage : http://www.kerignard.com/iledere/eclade.htm
