Mussels can always be served cooked
and cold, as part of a seafood platter, dipped into a spicy sambal and
chili sauces, added to paellas or, at the last
minute, fish soups. Large mussels served in the half shell can
also be stuffed and grilled
Cooked closed mussels should not be eaten - Unopened mussels
are just a nuisance to open because the mussel node has not
released. There is NO
scientific or microbiological reasoning to suggest they should
not be eaten. Don't waste them!
