Ingredients

  • 1 Pound mussels could get raw or precooked (rinsed and debeard)
  • 1/2 cup Gourmet Japanese sauce found in the Asian section of most supermarkets
  • 1/4 cup onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeño finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove finely chopped
  • 1 roma tomato chopped
  • Panko bread crumbs for topping

Instructions

Clean Mussels

  • Whether you are using raw or precooked mussels, rinse and remove any visible "beard" from the mussel by pulling it off. Also discard any crushed shells.

Cook Mussels

  • If mussels are raw, boil them in enough water (about 3 to 4 cups) over medium heat until they just pop open. Discard any mussels that do not open.Note: Mussels that do not open are dead and cannot be eaten.
  • Mussels that are precooked are already open and just need to be defrosted in water for 5 minutes and rinsed.

Preparing Mussels

  • Discard top shell that does not contain mussel.
  • Disconnect mussel flesh from other shell so they are easier to eat when done. (Refer to picture)

Creamy Mussel Mix

  • Mix jalapeño, onion, tomato and garlic with gourmet japanese sauce.

Baking Mussels

  • Put mussels on a baking sheet and top each with a teaspoon of mixture and then top each with panko bread crumbs.
  • Broil for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.Note: Check them periodically to make sure they are not burning. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
