Tortang Tahong (Mussels Omelet)

The nephew of my husband has been requesting me to cook him this dish because this is his favorite, so one Sunday, I did. It was a Mussels Omelet, so when I saw mussels available at the market I immediately bought half-a-kilo. Only half a kilo because we already have other dishes prepared for our lunch. And since I would it is not in season so it's still pricey.

What I need:
Fresh mussels

 Carrot, potato, red belle pepper, onions

 After boiling the mussels for a few minutes or until the shells have opened. Remove mussel meat from the shell then cut it into small bits. The same with the carrot, potato, belle pepper and two small onions. Please don't throw away the shells yet.

 Then mix it with an egg. Add salt and pepper to taste.
 After mixing it all, put back the prepared omelet at the mussel shells.
 Then fry with medium heat.

 And, tadah! It's now ready to be eaten. It's best paired with rice and ketchup or a sweet and sour sauce.
