Nothing could be easier.
They open up when they’re fully cooked ready.

Pick them out and dip in butter.

PS: You can use an empty shell as a tweezer, and pick out the rest of the mussels.

They work fine and are reasonable.
Cedar is cedar.

Just make sure they are untreated.

I’m going to make this recipe as soon as I pick up the mussels and a few jumbo shrimp to cook on the plank.

One of my favorite lunches out is the Hotel Laguna where you can sit on the patio overlooking the beach and eat Mussels and Fries, so yummy, full of garlic and butter. Its one of those “who would have thought” dishes…yep, Mussels and Fries! Now I’ll try planked mussels too.

They have an interesting selection of oval cut grilling planks as well as smoking wood. Ask for Dorie and tell her Ed sent you!

Found you on Pioneer Womans site and I am LOVING your blog!

By: Calamity Anne Fri, 24 Jul 2009 17:45:14 +0000 I just got a brand new wood smoker…and by golly…those mussels will be happening on it. Boy oh boy do they look delicious!!!

By: Kristin Fri, 24 Jul 2009 13:30:34 +0000 My poor boyfriend has been wanting to cook on a cedar plank for a long time and I’ve never bought him one. After seeing these mussels I think I definitely need to get on that… thanks for the reminder!

By: Jill Fri, 24 Jul 2009 12:50:15 +0000 I’m so glad you did a post on plank grilling because the hubby, bff, and I are still laughing about my first attempt. 30 minutes of soaking was definitely not enough no matter what the instructions on the packaging for the planks said. At least the wine was good!
