Grilled Mussels with Zesty Parmesan Cheese Topping





I did these on the grill, but you can certainly do them inside.

Recipe

- 3lbs - Mussels (washed and beards removed)
- 3/4 Stick Butter
- 1 TBS - Garlic Chopped
- 1 - Yellow Onion (diced)
- 1 - Jalapeno (diced)
- 1/2 Cup - Chopped Black Forest Ham
- 1/2 Cup Fresh Spinach (chopped)
- 1 TBS - Lemon Zest
- 1 Cup - Seasoned Bread Crumbs
- 1/4 Cup - Parmesan Cheese
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 2 TBS - Lemon Juice

Directions
- Combine butter, garlic, onion, jalapeno, ham and saute' until the onion begins to sweat 3-4 minutes

- Remove from heat, add in spinach, bread crumbs, cheese and thoroughly combine

- Grill or Steam live mussels just until they begin to open

- Open mussels, discarding top shell and cutting bottom abductor mussel

- Top each mussel with a liberal amount of topping

- Grill or Bake mussels just until the top is browned 4-5 minutes (do not overcook)

Enjoy!

No offense meant. IMHO, I think the flavor of the mussels would be lost in all those ingredients.

I really like the looks of the ingredients for the stuffing. The ham really caught my eye.
I've got an idea...

wow this looks amazing!! Mussles are one of my all-time favorites, but never thought of topping them before! Usually just have them in creamy garlic or blackbean sauce... Will be having a go at this thank you for sharing the recipe!

It's a good amount of work, but well worth it. Hope you enjoy. Thank you!

I almost bought a dozen of stuffed quahogs yesterday. I haven't had them in a long time. An old New England favorite. Just like the mussels. If there is one food we New Englanders know it is seafood.
