Grilled Mussels 🐚

Happy Weekend! Throw these on the grill for a nourishing appetizer 😍

Eating mollusks like clams and mussels is very important since they contain a boat load of nutrients in balance (since you’re literally eating the whole animal). This is critical because we miss out on many essential nutrients if we only eat muscle meats and certain cuts of seafood. You can check out my guide to nose to tail eating here πŸ™ŒπŸ»

I love mussels and usually just throw a can onto my fat fueled salad, but fresh grilled mussels are a fun way to spice it up! For sourcing, check out my guide to seafood, but I normally just get them from Vital Choice. They have pre-cleaned and boiled blue mussels which makes it all so much easier πŸ˜‡

One pound of shell on mussels yields about 4-5 ounces of meat, so plan on a pound per person πŸ™‚

We’ve made these mussels before on the stove- check out how to here πŸ¦ͺ

This recipe is incredibly simple, you just need the mussels, a grill and some salt! Then you can serve them with whatever veggie sides you want and optimally butter if you can tolerate dairy- I opt for Coconut Oil Mayonnaise 😍

To make you need:

1 pound of mussels per person 🐚

Sea salt πŸ§‚

How to:

Preheat your grill to 400Β°, then place the thawed mussels onto the rack. Close and grill for 5-6 minutes until the shells open. Discard the mussels who did not open up.

Enjoy with sauces and sides of your choice! I love them with tomato salad, grilled veggies, or sautΓ©ed carrots!
