Spicy Mussel Soup

This spicy mussel soup is a light and refreshing soup with a delicious, yet distinct flavor, that is surprisingly easy to make!

If you haven’t eaten mussels before, you’re in for a treat!

Mussels are mild-tasting and really soak up flavors nicely. They are slightly chewy and have a really unique, briny flavor which I absolutely love!

Are Mussels Keto-Friendly?

Yes, they are but you need to be mindful of portions. Mussels are slightly higher in carbs than most other seafood.
