We scrubbed (by we i mean the boys) the muscles before cooking them in a delicious cream, herb, chili and white wine sauce. Were so yummy and so happy my first experience of muscles was a great personal one :) !
Later that week we went back to the beach to get more and had them in a pasta dish which was even tastier!
If you might feel a bit squeamish around muscles or oysters really good to take them out their shells and put them in something like a pasta dish :)...
