Lennie, these are delicious!! The bread is a neccessity!!! The Cannery restaurant is still operating. My cousin used to be the head chef there, probably about the time you dined there!
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.
