Jordan also brought home a bag of mussels when he went fishing. The salty mollusks become exposed at low tide in craggy clusters that cling to the ocean rocks with surprising strength.

The saying goes that mussels are safe to eat in the months with the letter “r.” It is March so we should be good. When they come out of the steam pot, bright orange gems glint from inside opal gray and slate blue shells, like some scandalous Georgia O’keeffe painting.

Although a cream butter sauce is tempting, Jordan pushes for something a little less butter heavy.
