[Mussels] [Marinara] [Marinières [Curries] [Ethnic] [Filipino-American Cooking] [Lee's Recipes]

Baked Tahong are steamed half-shells of mussels topped with garlic, butter and quick-melting cheese then baked. Phillipinos use green shell mussels. So the best way to do these is to use imported frozen New Zealand green mussels which are already on the half-shell.

Ingredients:

a package of frozen New Zealand green mussels, defrosted
3 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped
butter
1 cup quickmelt cheese, grated
chopped green onions served as garnish

Directions:

  1. Process the garlic and butter together
  2. Place mussels on a baking sheet
  3. Top with the garlic butter
  4. Top with cheese
