I want to cook frozen mussels…when should I take them out of the freezer?

Trackback |      [pinit]

We can’t really predict how long it will take your mussels to thaw. That’s dependent on the quantity, how they’re packaged, your thawing method, etc. If you’re using a commercially frozen product, check the packaging or try contacting the manufacturer to see if they can offer thawing tips & time estimates.

I’d probably recommend moving them from the freezer to your refrigerator about 24 hours ahead so they can slow-thaw. Check them a little before you plan on cooking them, and if they’re still partially frozen, use the sink thawing method to thaw them the rest of the way.
