One of my dearest childhood memories is going to the beach with my parents, and not necessarily go for baths in the sea, but to catch mussels! I never did it myself... i would usually just play around in the sand while mum and dad gathered dinner! We used to holiday with my parents' friends Maria Jose and Senhor Mario, a sweet couple who had a house by the beach and always let us stay for the summer as long as my dad cooked every meal! That was a great deal!
My dad's famous mussels recipe was the most requested throughout summer time and Maria Jose always slurped the gravy. I used to think that was a little bit over the top... nowadays how I agree with her!
Well, the recipe is easy.
