  • Bake 25 to 30 min. or until liquid is absorbed and mussels open up. Discard any unopened mussels. Top paella with peas.

How to Clean Mussels

Rinse mussels under cold running water, pulling or scraping off the beards, also known as byssal threads, that are attached at the bottoms of the shells.

Purchasing Fresh Shrimp

Raw shrimp should be firm and smell like the sea. Shells of raw shrimp can vary from grayish-green to pinkish-tan or light pink in color. When cooked, the shell turns red and the meat takes on a pinkish tint.

Food Facts

The stigma of the crocus flower, saffron is most commonly used in Spanish and Middle Eastern cuisines. Though it is the most expensive spice in the world, a little does goes a long way!
