That looks like a good recipe Chef Tom… I prefer mussels over clams cooked this way. Thanks!

Great recipe. The only thing I would change(And this is NOT required) is to reduce the beer fifty percent before adding the mussels. I truly enjoy your channel, all the recipes and the hard work ya'll do to put these videos together. Thank you. And, I agree with Chris Pruett below. That is , "the Broth of Life."

That looks fantastic, you're a great chef. I'm not used to mussels outside of the confort southern France zone, with white wine and onions, so I'll try that!

My sister recently had mussels for the first time out at dinner…

Needless to say – it disturbed her. Of course she opened the mussel and it looked a bit too… ahem… vaginal. It sort of split with the shell. Still, she wound up liking it AND it was hilarious.

Thx Tom for another great dish! Is it possible to demonstrate how to do a full trout on the grill… I just can't seem to get it right… Not so much a recipe, but more the technique to keep the fish nice and complete

Awesome! Now please do a grilled clams!

First of all, another great recipe to add onto my list. Secondly, have you guys ever consider smoking any dry aged beef or anything else dry aged? Not sure if this question has already been asked so I'm just throwing it out there.

Do you think you can substitute the beer with white wine?? or would that not go with the Cajun seasoning?

hi Cheff I live in México City and last saturday I cooked this recipe at a friend's house watching the UEFA champions soccer final and let me tell you it was a great success. Instead of cast iron I used a clay skillet for paella. The mussles turned out great.

Amazing recipe. Flavor profile was completely on point. Only thing I noticed is that it was a pretty salty. Don't know if that was the bacon I chose, the recipe, or me, but I'd suggest adding the salt after all is said and done. Great recipe Chef Tom. How about smoked/grilled bone marrow? Interested?

Hey Tom. Guy from Maine here. We LOVE our steamers and other shellfish. One piece of advice for prepping your live shellfish. Soak them in a beer and breadcrumb paste. They’ll eat it and purge and sand/dirt and essentially improve their taste. Do this a day ahead and your shellfish will be that much better.
