How to Prep Live Mussels
Soaking live mussels in flour water cleans out any remaining grit, plumps up their meat, accentuates the meat’s color to make it more orange, and gives them a more creamy texture.
The mussels will eventually drown if left in flour water long enough, so you should only do this a few hours ahead of cooking them.
2. Scrub and de-beard your mussels if necessary.
3. Put the mussels in a deep bowl and cover them with the flour water mixture.
4. Soak in your refrigerator for 1-3hrs.
5. Rinse off the flour-water mixture before cooking the mussels.
