Mussel soup must be one of the easiest Korean soups to make, yet it is still very delicious. It is amazing to get such great flavor with such few ingredients. With only mussels, salt, green onions, and water, you will get a very tasty and flavorful mussel dish.
This reminds me of fond childhood memories in Korea. Once my mom bought a big bag full of fresh mussels from a fish market and boiled them all in a big pot with just water, salt, and green onions. I was amazed by the huge amount she was making, but as you know, the volume for mussels is large, but the actual amount after removing the shells, is not that much. LOL Our family finished it all during one meal. It was always a fun time to eat boiled mussels with my family. I can taste my mom’s mussel soup from my recipe and that makes me happy. It is not only the taste, but also the memories that I enjoy with this dish. Try it someday, and make your own memories with ones you love.
