Baked Mussels Casino

Its one of the best appetizer(pulutan) in the world. best paired with a bottle of wine.(a glass would not be enough for me,heheheh)..A great starter for a small catering “plated set menu”…We called it casino because the first time I made this was in school…Its an italian style starter paired with their wines while playing casino or any form of gambling….Did you know that mussels are full of healthful vitamins and minerals. Shellfish particularly mussels are one of the best dietary sources of zinc, a mineral necessary for keeping your immune system healthy and to promote the healing of wounds…
