So, what is mussel?

Mussels are a type of shellfish that are commonly found in both freshwater and saltwater environments. With a distinct, slightly sweet taste and firm texture, mussels are a popular ingredient in many cuisines around the world. They are typically cooked by steaming or boiling, and can be enjoyed on their own or added to soups, stews, pastas, and other dishes. Mussels are also a rich source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and vitamin B12, making them a healthy choice for seafood lovers. When selecting mussels, look for ones with tightly closed shells, as this indicates maximum freshness.
