Battered Mussels are a fancy appetizer very easy to make. At home, we use to make them for New Year’s Eve dinner, together with other fried seafood, like seaweed fritters, of fried prawns and squids. But mussels, of course, are at their best during summer, so I made them a few nights ago for a dinner on the terrace, served together with some cold sparkling wine 😉
I leave you too the recipe of beer-battered mussels and wish you a great Sunday! No seaside for me, I’m making countdown for my vacation;) Kisses!
