Oven baked cheesy mussels recipe. Raw mussels with breadcrumbs, garlic and Parmesan cheese mixture baked in an oven. Mussels must be alive when cooked, the shells unbroken and tightly closed. First of all, rinse mussels thoroughly under running cold water to remove all sand, then discard any that remain open. Using a stiff metal brush, scrub clean, scraping off any loose barnacles with a knife. And finally, using shears, clip off beards.

To steam mussels, place them in a large pot with a small amount of boiling water. Cover tightly and simmer over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until all the shells open up. Discard any unopened shells.

Here is very simple mussels recipe:
