I prefer my mussels in a hot(spicy red sauce)-extra bread for dipping

        I just like them steamed, with plenty of clarified butter and the broth from the mussels and the steaming liquid, which includes white wine, olive oil, garlic and a touch of water.

          Red, spicy marinara or fra diavolo on pasta.

          White wine with shallots etc. with crusty bread.

          Thai or Viet style with lemongrass and I'm not sure what.

          I'll take 'em all, now.

                  Michael, an old Long Island Sound guy, and I, another one,
                  like our mussels just as he described them. I can't imagine
                  mussels in spicy hot sauce which should be reserved for
                  foods you don't want to taste---hot sauce is just a cover
                  up for poor quality meat as far as I'm concerned.

                        When cooking pasta/seafood and using white wine, do you typically use dry? I don't cook much with it(or drink it)so I have no idea.

                        Thank you.

                            I prefer dry but I guess it would be a matter of taste or what kind of recipe you're making. BTW I love my mussels with white wine, olive oil, garlic and shallots.

                              I like them both: red Portuguese style and white with garlic and butter and white wine. I also like them stuffed.

                                --------as a kid in college I once had a job in a restaurant
                                shelling and cleaning shrimp. I ate almost as many as I sent to the
                                hor d'oeuvre bar. ---so------- I can not imagine stuffing mussels,,,,
                                I am afraid there would be few to serve and I would be stuffed.

                                    ... with red Spanish red sauce at JOE'S PIZZA in Northampton, Massachusetts ... order some plain pasta on the side so as to savor every last drop of the sauce.

                                        Both! If both are offered I would have a hard time deciding. Each one makes for a unique flavor and overall experiance. I need fresh soft bread served t osoak up the sauce either way.
