Enjoy a steaming pot of mussels < Back

Irish holidays don't get any better

The biggest secret to the amazing shellfish you will eat on the Loop? Freshness! As for the rest of the process: keeping it nice and simple!

There’s no better way to cook mussels and clams than steaming, and the reason is simple. When these shellfish cook, they release flavourful juices. If you steam them with a small amount of liquid, like wine, the juices drip down to the bottom of the pot and combine with the steaming liquid to become a shellfish broth with incredible flavour.

The resulting dish—shellfish served in its own broth—is so tasty and easy to prepare! And it makes for a great experience enjoying it with friends and family, by an open turf fire, accompanied by homemade brown bread or crispy golden chips and a glass of good white wine.
