I will be using frozen mussel meat in the interests of health and safety after having a disaster with fresh mussels.

I washed them, scrubbed the buggers, washed them again, followed a mundane recipe for how to cook them and not one opened. Entire lot scrapped. So please suspend belief that the mussels are fresh....
