The Spicy Steamed Mussels

Way back before I started keeping kosher I loved mussels, particularly steamed. So when I recently gave it up, naturally the first treif food I turned to was mussels. Steamed in a fantastic white wine and garlic sauce in St. John's, Newfoundland, no less! I've had it a couple of ways now, including Portuguese style. That one's a real treat at the Clam Broth House.

This was my first attempt at making them and I grabbed a recipe from Epicurious. All in all the sauce was good. Unfortunately I got a batch of poor-quality mussels, which kind of ruined the experience for me. Next time I'll make sure to hit up one of the 30th Avenue fish markets.

Setting the table. 

Happy little mussels. Well, I suppose if they could feel happiness it wouldn't be happening at this particular moment. 

Still, I ended up cleaning my plate. 

Then the Thrifty Sifter and I went to see Thor. Don't bother; it's rubbish.
