    Directions

    1. If using whole mussels, clean them and remove their beards. If using clams, let them sit in salted, cold water for a bit to get the sand out.
    2. Add the seafood to a pot with 2 centimeters of water in it and bring to a boil. Cover and let boil about 2 minutes until the shellfish open.
    3. Discard those that did not open and remove the meat from those that did. Save the shells for garnish. Strain the cooking liquid and set aside.
