Mussels are relatively inexpensive, and they’re also environmentally friendly. Because farmed mussels are grown suspended
in water, there is no dredging the ocean ﬂoor to harvest them. To make sure mussels are alive, tap them to see if their shells
close. Toss any mussels that do not close. Mussels cook quickly and can be steamed, smoked, grilled, and baked. Steamed mussels
are easy and it's fun to experiment with the broth. Combining coconut and basil is delicious, like in this recipe.
