A few years ago we had the best mussels in Prince Edward Island after a golf game. Most of the golf courses served free mussels. The only thing better than free mussels is free GOOD mussels. And these ones were so good, we actually asked how they made them. Expecting a lengthy description, we were surprised to find out they were made with 2 ingredients. Beer and steak spice. No kidding. So we made Beer and Steak Spice Mussels at home and they were just as good as in PEI.
Mmmmmmmussels. Not to be confused with muscles, of which I have none. But these bivalves are so easy to cook and they’re cheap! I mean inexpensive. You can find them at most grocery stores and since they’re harvested year round, they’re always in season. 80% of the mussels sold in North America are from PEI so include some in your Canada Day weekend celebration!
