The Most Delicious Mussels in Hong Kong

The Most Delicious Mussels in Hong Kong

Shell fish will always be plentiful wherever there’s lots of clean water, and the oceans near China fit the bill for all sorts of delicious crustaceans, shell fish, and fish of all kinds. Seafood is also a traditional favourite of the city, and is eaten in many ways. Mussels are also very popular, and in recent times, there’s been lots of European and other influences on how to eat these juicy little shell fish.

The French love them in creamy, garlicky sauce, the Thai’s love them with chilli and coconut, and the Irish simmer them in white wine or even beer. Served with fries, or a hunk of French bread, they’re a delicious treat, and a healthy, low fat one too. So here’s a few more ideas for how you can enjoy them.
