mussels; put them into a pot with pepper and two
stirring spoons of water. Cover and cook until
the valves are opened. Serve with halves of
lemons. Another way of preparing mussels and
soup: put mussels into a pot, cover and let
valves open. Remove just one shell from each
mussel. Pour onto a slice of toasted homemade
bread, season with strong flavoured oil.
