How To Defrost Mussels
To safely thaw mussels, place the mussels in the refrigerator overnight so it can thaw out gradually.
This is the best way to preserve the mussels flavor and texture.
Cooking Mussels with No Shell
- Frozen mussels no longer in the shell may not require as much work as those still in the shell.
- These frozen mussels have already been cooked and cleaned, and you may not need to cook them at all.
- Simply defrost in your kitchen sink under cold running water or in your refrigerator overnight and then add to your dish.
Cooking Mussels with Shell
- Steam frozen mussels still in the shell for three or four minutes in a covered saucepan over medium-high heat with butter, garlic, and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, then reduce the heat and simmer for a few minutes longer.
- The shells should open; discard any that remain closed.
