Moules marinieres is originally from Normandy but is a Belgium and north classic dish . In my original county mussels are served with a large serving of fries and a glass of beer. I often recreate this dish as it is so easy to make and will please everybody.For this dish mussels have to be very fresh. Any raw opened mussels should be discarded along with the one that floats in the water as it is a signs of old mussels.
