Kitchen Adventures: Moroccan Mussels

Full Title: Moroccan Mussels with Tapenade Toasties and Cucumber Salad. Another trip to Morocco! 

Ingredients: Olive Oil, Garlic, Harissa, Chopped Tomatoes, Cilantro, Preserved Lemons, Saffron, Mussels, Ciabatta Loaf, Round Lettuce, Cucumber, Mint, Lemon, Fat Free Yogurt, Sun Dried Tomato Tapenade
I should warn anyone who would try to make a mussel dish. Make sure you cook the night before your trash goes out. The mussels shells and any meat you didn't eat will smell like DEATH the next day. We lived with it for a couple days... and it still haunts us. *shudder* Aside from this minor hiccup, this was definitely something we would make again. It was interesting and different. The flavor of the sauce that the mussels cook in was unique. A tiny hint of spice. Delicious. The toasties were useful in soaking up the sauce. 549 calories gets you a big piece of bread, a ton of mussels and a small little salad.
