Today we’re travelling to Galicia with Agustín! The author of the food blog Elbullirdeagus is a regular friend in our recipe competition and never ceases to surprise us with his tasty recipes. This time, it is a dish of mussels Galician style that are very easy to prepare thanks to our tinned products. And the result is… well, you can judge for yourselves! We’re too busy wiping our plates clean 😉
