Adobong Tahong (Green Mussels Adobo)

iCookonboard turns 2, Yay!!!

Thank you so much for all your Support!!!

Life Onboard is tough, rough and isolated… At least, that was before!

Lucky me, I have you to share my adventures onboard. Thanks for your time…

Thank you iCookonboard-002

Now please join me as I cook and dine with my crew…

Today’s meal is very special and one of the best the sea has to offer. As a cook, every minute counts. A dish like this that is ready in few minutes is something I love to prepare.

If you haven’t tried Green Mussels Adobo before, I suggest you give it a try. I recommend you have it with an ice cold beer. “Wish I have a couple of beers in my fridge!” =)

Big thanks to Captain Dante Cruza of M/V Forest Hill for this recipe.

  1. I love the way you spiced the mussels and they look absolutely delicious and I agree with you that fresh mussels are better than frozen but frozen works as well! 🙂
