Worth knowing about the preparation
Before you go to mussels cooking, you should thoroughly clean them. Rinse the mussels with cold water and free them of stubborn sand and dirt with a brush. The mussel beard should also be removed. You can do this by pulling it with your hand or with a kitchen knife firmly in the direction of the wider end of the shell. While you are cleaning the mussels, make sure that they are completely closed. When the tray is open, tap the tray once with a spoon. When the gap closes, the mussel can be further prepared. These with open or damaged shells must be sorted out and discarded. Because these can even be toxic.
