For my selection, I opted to use a package of shelled mussel meats I had in the freezer. It makes easy work of it when creating things such as pasta or curry.

The mussels cook very quickly and makes the entire meal a very easy, but elegant one.

Add a side of salad and some garlic bread with a glass of wine and you’re all set. That’s the beauty of mussels. They have great simplicity, great flavor and they cook lightning fast.
