Cooking Mussels ! (Belgian Style)

One thing we do a lot on the boat is mussels. It is easy to do, delicious and we can even harvest them when we find a spot not contaminated...This recipe is from Belgium (from where I am) and super easy to do in a boat.

If you went to Belgium, you know we have hundreds of ways to prepare them and each family almost has a recipe. The principle is always the same with more or fewer ingredients, beer or wine etc.

This recipe is the one my mother was doing with a small modification from my wife . I hope you enjoy it!

Re: Cooking Mussels ! (Belgian Style)

We have been quarantined for a long time and know we don't have covid. Too bad we are are on the east coast though.
Soon enough people will be allowed out after more of the vaccine has been distributed.

Same here. I do hope so that the vaccine will come quickly and we will be able to share again the joy of cruising with others

Re: Cooking Mussels ! (Belgian Style)

In common English it is “steaming the mussels in wine”.

It’s the same recipe in Holland

Edit: we eat it using the empty shell of a mussel instead of a fork. We also use a small bowl with plain vinegar and freshly ground pepper to dip the mussels in. This is not only a great taste; it also washes any leftovers sand off.

We do the same. We don't use fork except for the first mussel

Maribel is showing it at the end of the video.

Re: Cooking Mussels ! (Belgian Style)

Couldn't watch it (grumble follows) but I ask: it has to be moules et frites. How do you cook the fries?

[Grumble: First time I've hit this - I apparently can't watch a Youtube (a Google company) video without creating an account or logging in to Google. Sorry, but I don't want to give Google more of my life.]

Oh, we need to do a video on this!

We do it in a pan with oil. Very easy. I Will send you a few pictures and an explanation.

I didn't know you couldn't see the video without a youtube account. Sorry about that.
