Skillet-Grilled Mussels

If seafood on the grill sounds scary, you’ve got to try this easy method of grilling mussels! A cast-iron skillet directly on the grill is the way to go and as soon as the mussels pop open, they’re ready for eating!

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds mussels (pull off any beards)
