Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Step 2
Rinse the Fresh Mussels (24) under cold water while scrubbing, preferably with a stiff kitchen brush. Remove the beard by pulling down and outward. Grip the mussel with a towel for ease.
Step 3
Heat a stock pot or large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the mussels and Water (3/4 cup). Cover and allow to steam until mussels have began to open. The process will take only a few minutes. Transfer any opened mussels out of the pot. Continue cooking remaining mussels and discard any unopened mussels after 5-6 minutes.
Step 4
Remove the empty shell and discard. Using your fingers or a fork, wiggle the mussel out of the shell it is nestled in. You will have to break the mussel from the shell, so put a little umph in it. Lay the mussel back into the shell and arrange on baking sheet.
Step 5
Prepare the filling. In a skillet, cook the Bacon (4 piece) until crispy and all the fat has rendered. Drain the bacon on paper towels and chop into small bite-size pieces. Drain the fat, reserving for other recipes if preferred, and wipe the pan clean.
Step 6
Return the pan to medium heat and melt the Butter (6 tablespoon). Add the Garlic (2 clove), Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1 pinch), Ground Black Pepper (1/4 teaspoon), and cook for 45 seconds until fragrant. Stir in the Lemon (1).
Step 7
Add the Seasoned Breadcrumbs (1 cup), Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup), crumbled bacon, and Fresh Parsley (2 tablespoon) and mix to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes. The mix should be crumbly, but wet enough to stick together if pressed with your fingers. If not, drizzle over Olive Oil (to taste) until achieved.
Step 8
Taste the mix and add Salt and Pepper (to taste). Once taste is achieved, add a spoonful of mix over the mussels under cover. Repeat until all mussels have been filled.
Step 9
Bake for 6-7 minutes until breadcrumbs are golden brown.
Step 10
Serve with a wedge of lemon and cold glass of white wine. Enjoy!
