luciazephyr: Book of the Still, the time traveler's lifeline (Default)
Time for an installment of Lucy's Failed Adventures in Cooking.

So, I found a box of frozen mussels in the freezer. Searched the internet and discovered that no one talks about frozen mussels. They appear to be totally taboo. Anyway, the box said to cook them about six minutes in the oven. Made some makeshift herb butter (dab of butter, basil, and rosemary) and drizzled that onto the mussels. Tossed them in the oven at 275 for a few minutes.

When I took them out, they smelled awesome. Very sweet smell. Alas, when I tried to eat them, they tasted fishy. Really fishy. :icked face:

I know I've had mussels that were sweet and tender and yummy. But I have no idea how to do that. Anyone know?
