Do you like, and eat mussels?

Do you eat them out or cook them yourself?

I really like mussels as I do most shellfish.

I do not eat mussels out often as they are messy to eat in their shells.

The other night I made a mussel and potato soup and the mussels were taken out of the shell -it was delightful! See it here:http://recipeyum.com.au/mussel-and-potato-soup/

Not a lot of work but something slightly different, even though I only got a bronze award for it!

Mussels are easy to cook and are generally in a tomato/garlic sauce and seem to be nice no matter how they are cooked.

Meh. Not really. Seafood and I are very limited bedfellows.

I like mussels but I do not get to eat it that often. As a matter of fact, I have been really craving seafood lately.

I have never had Mussels. It will probably be something I try only once.
why is that?
by Finy
LOVE the little buggers.

I buy them in a jar and
eat from the jar...with salad.

YUM :)
I like mussels; I buy them ready cooked to eat as a snack rather than in their shells to be cooked for dinner.
Love them, & will order if on Menu, when dining-out!
Yes I like them. I buy them in a tin & mash them onto aslice of bread. I'll also eat them in The Star (Casino) buffet every Dec, when I have Christmas lunch there with 2 friends. They only had them on the menu last Dec, & that was in another part of the casino, while the renovations were going on in the old buffet place..

No. I like most seafood but not that.
I am allergic to shellfish so I do not eat mussels at all!!
Love them. My favourite way to cook is mussels in umido, basically in its own juices but first tossed quickly in little finely chopped onion, garlic, tomato & finished with a little white wine, all tossed together, then chopped Italian parsley - voila! Delicioso.
that is how I made my soup -check reipeyum.com.au Finy)!
by Finy
Sounds good Finy. But this ends up with just a little liquid in the mussels when served. Small amounts of everything or it becomes sloppy. But made as a soup does sound interesting. The first time I had In Umido was at Doyle's in Watson's Bay, Sydney on my honeymoon (best forgotten), early 80"s. I never forgot the bowl piled high with garlicky, delicious mussels with just a little of their juices flavoured with white wine, etc. To die for!

I love both raw( straight from the beach) or fresh from my fishmonger and cooked New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels (one of the Best in the World Healthwise!. When I need a straight shot of Iron, 5or6 raw ones straight down the hatch, cant beat that fresh mussel flavour!! Fresh is Best and home cooked in marinara, in the shell on the bbq and minced with onion to make mussel fritters. Ahh reminds me of my childhood in Auckland, NZ.
I live in Australia now and the Sydney ones are only little. The Kiwi(NZ) ones are snap frozen and sent over, still good. But nothing like being at home to pick em or buy them fresh as.

I take green lipped mussel pills instead of fish oil! I have not heard of eating mussels raw like oysters which I love.
by Finy
Hey Finy, thats wonderful you take the pills/supplements, they are very good for you as you know. The raw ones are an acquired taste, I heard them called "strong flavoured". Im a NZ Maori (Native Aboriginal) so we grew up eating them naturally. Gosh, anyway you get the Vitamins and Minerals from them is all beneficial. I happy to know you take the supplement :)

You can always move back again to your yummy NZ mussels! What made you swap countries anyway?
by Miro
I like them in a hot tomato and garlic base and at the buffet it's with sweet chilli sauce. Only been able to buy the green lipped ones once as Woolworths in another suburb had a once only order but when we go to Black Wattle Bay we buy them however they are selling them on the day.
I like mussels in seafood marinara but the potato and mussel soup sounds good and nice in this weather
I was on a work training Course, in Sydney, 1980, & other participants' & I dined out every night, for a week! Way to go!

I remember well, a French Restaurant, in Oxford St., we went to, & I had a bowl of piping hot garlicky-juiced, liquidy Mussels!
They were absolutely scrumptious, with fresh bread to soak up the lovely liquid!

I still think of that meal to this day, as I was very hungry, & was in excellent company.
It was the first time I'd had Mussels, & love them still.
Even the tinned ones' are nice once in a while!
Not a big fan, but I will eat them if they are in a food I am eating.
by Vee
Yes I do,they are good in a white wine sauce.....

No and I dont think I will ever.
No, never have and probably never will.
Yes in a white wine sauce...

Yes, i like them, but only eat them at the casino buffet Christmas lunch, or on a cruise, if I see them on the menu, or at the cruise buffet.
