Tahong Recipe with Crunchy Garlic
This seafood dish is the perfect party appetizer! It uses our green mussels, or tahong, as the main ingredient and it's plain delicious.
How do you make garlic tahong?
The trick to cooking tahong and making it into appetizers like these is to cook the shellfish at the last minute before stuffing it with your flavorful crumb mix. This requires no baking so this is actually the easy way of making it. Instead, the crumb mix is made in a nonstick pan and once the tahong are cooked, are used to top each one before serving. This ensures each tahong is still fresh and tender when it's served.
Here's a rule to note when cooking with shellfish like tahong: Mussels that do not open upon cooking are no longer fresh, so do not use them in making this dish.
