The rules of cooking
Cooked frozen mussels you can just reheat or boil in a little water for 5 minutes. Raw frozen mussels should cook for 7 minutes – they cannot be frozen again because shellfish are highly perishable.
To defrost untreated mussels, you need to leave them on the air, then thoroughly rinse under cold running water to remove the sand and remains of algae, and for several minutes to boil them in plenty of water. When choosing frozen mussels, it is important to ensure that inside the package avoid drips of liquid.
Cooked mussels again dipped in cold water, then bring to a boil – it allows to preserve all vitamins and microelements contained in the clams and remove all the toxic substances. After boiling, mussel shells themselves will be revealed, and the meat will be easy to get hold of them with a knife. Frozen peeled cooked mussels in cold salted water – their readiness, they reach after the water boils and covered with film. Long to cook mussels is impossible, otherwise their meat will become tough and will lose their entire benefit.
