Here’s another of many posts with pictures of food. Yay food!
This is a recipe I got from the liquor store’s seasonal publication. I love Occasions Magazine because they don’t just suggest some delicious recipes, they also pair each recipe with fitting wine (or in this case, beer).
The dish I made here is the Eat Drink Man Woman Taiwanese Clams (there was a movie recipe theme in that issue).
As those well-versed in seafood can tell, I’m using mussels, not clams. When cooking in Newfoundland, especially when you don’t have a car to drive across town in, you become really flexible with substitutions.
Mussels need to be washed and scrubbed before being prepared. Why, I don’t know, since they’re sealed shut until you steam them.
W00t! Steamed mussels! It was way easier than I expected. I should really make mussels more often.
Served with the Yanjing beer suggested in the recipe.
They were so delicious that I ate them all in one sitting, all by myself.
