How to Prepare Mussels

Hi Fish Folk!

I love mussel because of the wonderful broth that is produced everytime I make them. They are also simple to make and can be ready in under 15 minutes. For all my mussel recipes of all David York Tax Services I start with a simple base recipe:

  • 1 pound mussels (per person)
  • 1 Cup of Broth or White Wine
  • 3 TBSP minced garlic
  • Kosher Salt & Cracked Black Pepper to taste

To the base recipe I mix it up and any of the following:

  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Basil
  • Pesto
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Onion
  • Shallots
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Celery
  • Tomatoes
  • Lemon
  • Lake Whitefish
  • Shrimp
  • Prosciutto

As you can see there are lots of options! I consider this a Pantry Staple Recipe— meaning I can bring mussels home for dinner without a recipe in mind because I know I have something in the pantry that will work. If impromptu cooking makes you nervous, pop over to our recipe page and look under “M” for the Mussel recipes.
