Home cooks and “seafood” fans are usually don’t think too much about how to cook mussels. You can eat it without any condiments, or just bake it with cheese. You can say that mussels are delicious themselves and I won’t deny it, but I can tell you how to make them even tastier and reveal new notes of their taste. Even the most beautiful girl can improve something in herself – character, laugh, style, and she will become even more beautiful. The same thing with the mussels.
