Cook's Notes

You may use frozen (as seen in this video) or fresh Mussels and Clams for this recipe. If using FRESH mussels and clams, note that they are alive and should be stored in the refrigerator in a breathable container (not sealed in a plastic bag) until ready to cook. For frozen clams and mussels: Thaw under cold water for 1/2 hour, rinse to dislodge any excess sand or grit. Pull off beards or material that protrudes between shells. For fresh clams and mussels: Scrub clams and mussels with small scrub brush under cold running water to dislodge excess sand and grit. Pull off beards or material that protrudes between mussel shells. For fresh clams and mussels: Discard clams or mussels with cracked shells or that don’t close tightly when tapped lightly against the counter. After cooking, discard any unopened clams or mussels.
