29: Baked Mussels (Tahong)

I promise you this is going to be awesome!!!  Ingredients are basic. However, the secret of this dish lies on the timing. Ok, honesty cap on.  If you watch cooking shows that feature mussels as a “star”, they will say that we should only use mussels that are not dead. To check this, you should…
