It is a green clam that we cook as a soup.It is great with steamed rice and some salt. I like the green leaves of chili on it. It is yummy. sometimes, we baked the mussels.Some people grilled it with butter and cheese. How about you ,guys? How do you cook the mussels?

I always see those things in the market but I dont buy them cause I dont know how to cook them. I usually check youtube for some recipes but I have checked anything there that has something to do with mussels.

I really like seafood, in my area is usually cooked with chilli, red and white onions, pepper, salt and flavorings, and then incorporated into scallop stir frying, this will be more feel good

I think there are lots of way to cook mussels. We can stir fry it with some red peppers and garlic; bake it with butter and onions; make seafood soup with mussels...

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
