Notes:

The Filipino Mussels Soup (Tinolang Tahong) is a very affordable dish. Great tasting food is easy to cook and is also healthy.

Patis - Filipino fish sauce. This amber-colored sauce made from salted and fermented fish is similar to Thailand's nam pla and Vietnam's nuoc nam, but saltier than both. Patis is used in cooking or as a condiment.

Hints:

Choose fresh mussels with shells tightly closed, before cooking.
Slightly opened-up mussel shells can only be eaten if the shells tightly close-up when lightly tapped-on.
An open-up shell means that mussel is dead and therefore can be toxic throw it away.
Mussels will keep, in a large bowl, covered with a damp cloth, for up to 48 hours, refrigerated.
