Hi Friends!

It looks like a I’ve seen this recipe being posted a whole lot, especially over the holidays. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it tastes good! Ultimately, it appears to have a weird combination of ingredients. Possibly due to the fact that it has the mayo on top of the mussels…Nonetheless, the overall combination of simple flavours is rather unique.

Give it a try and let me know how you like it!

  • 12 green mussels
