Pesto Makes Mussels Gourmet
Mussels are usually a dish only found in restaurants. But if you want a quick seafood dinner, all you need is 20 minutes and some pesto to make a meal that could easily be found at any five star establishment.
Mussels are always a delicious choice when you're in the mood for shellfish. But if you're like me, you've shied away from them because they seem impossible to clean. Well, I'm here to tell you I was wrong. They're actually not hard to clean at all. And considering it only takes about five minutes for them to cook, I can't believe it's taken me this long to prepare them for dinner.
I was shocked at how easy it was to take the mussels from the store to the dinner table. I mean, all it took was a little scrubbing to get the shell spic and span, then I dropped them in some boiling wine and five minutes later, voila -- dinner was served. I'm not kidding, it's seriously that easy. So if you love mussels as much as I do, don't wait to order them at a restaurant, make them in your very own kitchen.
