Fried mussels in batter, procedure

Pour the mussels, cleaned and scraped, into a pot of hot water covered with the lid and cook over high heat for the minutes necessary to open their shells. Drain the molluscs with the aid of a colander and pour them into a small bowl where you will let them cool for a few minutes. Once the mussels have reached room temperature, deprive the molluscs of their shells and keep the edible part in a bowl. Prepare the batter. In a bowl pour the beaten egg yolks, the water, the yeast, the flour, the salt and mix to obtain a uniform mixture without lumps.

Incorporate the beaten egg whites and mix to have a smooth amalgam without food thickening. Heat a generous amount of seed oil in a non-stick pan with high sides. Quickly pass the shellfish in the batter and place them in the pan with the hot oil. Immediately close the pan and cook everything over low heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. At the end of cooking, remove the fried mussels from the pan and place them on a piece of kitchen paper. Sprinkle with salt according to your taste. Here the mussels are ready. Transfer your dishes into a nice serving dish and serve them hot. Those with a sweet tooth can sprinkle lemon juice on the fried mussels.
