Mussels Roasted in Almond-Garlic Butter
Hayward credits this recipe to Alan McGrath, his former chef de cuisine at Fore Street. It is easy to see a Spanish influence in the savory combination of garlic, chiles and toasted almonds. The mussels Hayward uses at the restaurant are farmed off of Bang's Island in Maine's Casco Bay.
