    These were nice for something different and I loved the batter itself, but wasn't 100% sold on the idea of deep-frying mussels. My GF doesn't like the 'look' of mussels and she did eat and enjoy these, while I would have preferred a more traditional steaming recipe to keep the meat a little more tender. Well worth a try though for anyone that wants to introduce mussels to anyone that's normally put off a bit by their appearance!
