Twitter #Weekendeats highlights: Show us your mussels

Sometimes, it's good to show your mussels while cooking. No, not the Popeye muscles, but our small shelled, bearded friends from the sea. If you scrub them down and get them to open up, they're quite good company. During Monday morning's #weekendeats chat, some participants were brave enough to share their mussels. Here are the highlights:

Grek K, also known as @Geezshock on Twitter, shared a photo of his mussels from Hitchcock Restaurant in Seattle. The Rosso Wine Shop shared a photo of steamed mussels with passato di  pomodoro, chilles and herbs from Osteria Mozza.

For mussels in a red sauce, Patricia Conte from the blog Grab a Plate shared a recipe for mussels marinara. If you prefer white, Jessica from Jessica's Gluten Dairy Free Kitchen shared a recipe for mussels and clams over linguine.

If we inspired you to mussel up your dinner tonight, here are a couple recipes to check out from the Los Angeles Times Test Kitchen:


Garlic soup with mussels

Grilled mussels with red wine and chorizo

Please join in by tweeting your #Weekendeats at us Monday morning @latimesfood and share your photos with us in our "Weekend eats" gallery. We'll feature some of the photos here on Daily Dish, so be sure to check back for more #Weekendeats and #Foodporn throughout the week.

Hope to see everyone next Monday morning on Twitter! It's sure to be a drool-worthy good time.
