Smoked Mussel Ragu

A Smoked Mussel Ragu is a flavorful sauce or ragu made with smoked mussels as the main ingredient. Ragu is an Italian term used to describe a meat-based sauce that is typically simmered for a long time to develop rich flavors. However, in the case of a Smoked Mussel Ragu, the sauce is seafood-based and features the smoky and briny flavors of the mussels.

The result is a savory, smoky, and briny sauce with tender and flavorful mussels infused throughout. Smoked Mussel Ragu can be a unique and delicious seafood-based alternative to traditional meat ragu dishes.

Did you know: In Italian cuisine, ragù is a meat-based sauce that is commonly served with pasta. An Italian gastronomic society, Accademia Italiana della Cucina, documented several ragù recipes. The recipes’ common characteristics are the presence of meat and the fact that all are sauces for pasta. The most typical are ragù alla bolognese (Bolognese sauce). Other types are ragù alla napoletana (Neapolitan ragù), and ragù alla Barese.
