Before frying mussels, you need to check the clams for the presence of “hairs” and remove them if necessary. On low heat, fry onion and garlic with vegetable or butter, add thawed mussels and fry for 3-5 minutes. If you have mussels in the wings, then they can be thrown into the pan frozen. The water will begin to melt and the mussels will stew a little, guaranteed to remain juicy.
