“This recipe is based on the steamed mussels that you get at Hurricane's restaurant in Kennebunkport, ME. Although this is good and comes close, nothing compares to eating them at Hurricane's with their warm crusty bread to soak up the broth. However, if you can't get to Maine, this is the next best thing . . .”
