Grilled Dynamite Mussels

Happy first day of Summer!! It’s grilling season! I love grilling season, but I hate grilling myself. I usually leave that up to the bf because I can’t even start a fire and I’m too scared to use the gas grill haha. When the bf does set up the grill for me, I usually grill really easy simple recipes just because I don’t want to spend my whole time standing in front of the fire. This recipe fits the bill. Dynamite mussels are my absolute favorite thing to cook on the grill! So easy, so fast, and it really impresses your guests! And you betcha it’s yummy!
