Mussels are one of my favorite seafood, so I ’m always looking for new ways to enjoy them. I’ve several succulent fashions with this shellfish as a main component, similar as crisp tahongs,

inelegant baked mussels, and mussels cooked a la gambas, and I ’m agitated to add this omelette to the list.

This tortang tahong is a barrel of mussels, shallots, scallions and tomatoes seasoned with oyster sauce and also outgunned with ethereal eggs.

had a big piece of it for lunch paired with a stew and banana ketchup dip and oh, yum! It’s such a simple dish to make, but succulent and stuffing.

Omelet is of course succulent with rice, but I’ve been known to stuff it between warm loaves of pandesal or sliced chuck with a generous nugget of mayo.

It sounds like an odd combination, but it’s worth a pass 🙂
