Mussels are one of my favorite things to share. It’s rare that I ever eat them alone.
A pot of mussels in a savory sauce is meant to be shared. One of my favorite memories of sharing mussels is finding a restaurant in Sydney, Australia that served an all-you-can-eat mussels special on Tuesday nights.
They had several different sauces to choose from, like mussels steamed in wine, Thai flavored mussels and mussels marinara. All served with another of my favorite things – a big side of french fries. But the best part of the dinner was getting caught in a huge rain storm on the way home.
While I’ll probably never replicate that night, eating mussels will always bring back that wonderful memory. So even if you don’t get caught in the rain on a romantic vacation in an exotic destination, I still recommend making the mussels and sharing them with someone special.
