Mussels are one of the best tasting shellfish that you can find in the ocean as well with populated throughout certain coastal cuisines. Mussels play one of the biggest roles in Australian, New Zealand cuisine all the across to Italy and Scotland.

Like Clams, while being cooked if they do not open, do not eat and toss as this can make you very ill. Mussels are paired mostly with a thick spicy sauce including butter and garlic as the bases in all cuisines. They are naturally saltier than Clams so be careful with seasoning this dish.
