I love seafood. I mean love. I'll even eat mediocre seafood. This, I won't eat again. It was a pain in the ass. The sauce was like drinking ocean water. I so very rarely throw out seafood. I did not finish this and I would not ever buy this again. I'll clean my own mussels for now on. For $3.99 I could have cooked a whole big bag of mussels. One of the least pleasant things I've eaten is Trader Joe's Mussels in a White Wine Sauce.
Pros: You aren't cleaning your own mussels. The box is pretty.
Cons: So many. Here we go: vacuum sealed bag made it hard, I couldn't tell if they were open or shut, some were broken, bag kept floating to the surface, sauce was painfully salty. I wanted to like this so very much. This was an ugly Betty.
The verdict: I would not buy this again under any circumstances. Dearest Trader Joes- This is wasting valuable freezer space. Please make it go away.
Here is the run down of pictures and I'm not even going to explain all of them:
Frozen on left, cooked on right
Don't buy this. This is good Trader Joe's freezer space that is wasted.
