Tips/Hacks For Mussels:
First, before cooking, make sure shells are closed. If not tap them. If the mussels don’t close throw them out. Also, smell the shells! If they smell salty and fresh they are good to cook! Finally, soak them in water around 20 min before cooking. The mussels breathing in water they will expel sand! So you can prevent sandy bites! I love making this in the summer for friends!
