The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of mussels. While mussels may be intimidating to cook, they're actually quite simple. You can steam them with any flavor combinations you'd like, though the classic is white wine and garlic. They're also relatively cheap at the grocery store, and when you buy them farmed you don't have to worry about the task of cleaning them. Wild mussels, while a little harder to find, have great flavor.
