    Lennie's Note:

    I haven't cooked this recipe (I've had it though), but found a postcard tucked in a cookbook with the recipe on it; I got the postcard when I dined at The Cannery in Vancouver BC back in 1979. I don't even know if the restaurant is still there! We had these as an appetizer then, but it could also be a main course for 2.

      We tried the mussels and found that the prosciutto is what makes these just a bit different. Yes, the bread is a must to scoop up those lovely juices. I would do this recipe again. P.S. The Cannery is still going strong and sitting pretty on the waterfronts of Vancouver.
