I doubt I will be able to make this recipe any time soon as I have never seen mussels for sale here, but I will be watching for them! From the *Best Seafood Recipes* cookbook of the Australian Women's Weekly cookbook series, this easy-fix recipe is for your grilling pleasure & the pic looked amazing! (Time does not include time for skewers to soak or marinate in refrigerator & cooking time has been *guesstimated* , so use your best judgment) *Enjoy*

  2. For the Glaze: Combine all ingredients, mix well & set aside.
  3. For the Skewers: Cook mussels in lrg saucepan of water, remove from shells & set aside.
  4. Cut ea bacon slice into 3 equal pieces, wrap ea mussel in a cut bacon piece & thread onto skewers.
  5. Using a pastry brush, brush all exposed surfaces of the bacon-wrapped mussels w/the glaze mix & turn skewers as needed to get full coverage.
  6. Place skewers in a dish lrg enough to hold them in a single layer & refrigerate for 1 hour.
  7. Grill skewers till bacon is crisp & mussels tender. Brush occ w/remaining glaze during cooking.
  8. NOTE: The pic showed the yield as 8 skewers w/6 bacon-wrapped mussels on ea skewer, so serve 1 skewer as an appy or 2 skewers as a main course.
