When I think of mussels, I think of moules frites (mussels with french fries) served steaming and fresh at a seaside café in Trouville, Normandy. I guess the place where you eat something for the first time lodges in your memory as the quintessential spot to savor it.
But maybe this fall (peak mussel season) it's time for a trip to Washington state. Penn Cove mussels take to the Thai treatment of lemongrass, yellow curry, fresh basil and tomatoes at the Seattle bastion of all things seafood, Ivar's Acres of Clams, says blogger Pabo76, who shot this photo. Over at Ivar's Mulkiteo Landing restaurant, they do a mussels appetizer with red curry broth, ginger and cilantro. If you can't make it to Seattle, try it at home, with this Kitchen Daily recipe.
