I thought clams and muscles had to be live before you cook them.

I often buy the frozen New Zealand Green Mussels on the half shell.

Once thawed, I place them on a baking sheet and smother each one with a bechamel sauce that's heavy on garlic and I broil them until bubbly and browned.

Yes, if you buy fresh clams, mussels, oysters, they should be alive. Shells should close if you "bother" them. But I have eaten frozen mussels (New Zealand Green Lip) but I have never had frozen (fresh) mussels. The Green Lips are great if the fresh ones are not available.

psiguy - how about a little sauteed spinach with some onion and bacon THEN top with that bechemel!!!! Oh, and garlic :oops:

Kitchenelf, sounds delightful. I'll give that a try one of these days soon. Maybe this weekend.

I sometimes add a little parmesan cheese to it, but not usually. I keep hearing Italians yelling at me that you never put cheese on seafood.
