Lyn's Baked Tahong na Hindi

Not all kids enjoys tahong (mussels), but when my friend Lyn cooks mussels with garlic and cheese, my kids will surely sit and eat tahong.

Every time we have get together or cookout, we always request Lyn to bring her mussel dish, which we call  Lyn's Baked Tahong na Hindi.

The first time I tasted this dish, I thought Lyn baked it. Hindi pala, hence, I called it Lyn's Baked Tahong na Hindi.  

First, boil the mussels, let it cool. Watch the video for the rest of the procedures on how Lyn prepares this Baked Tahong na Hindi.

Benefits of Eating Mussels:

Mussel gives a good amount of certain vitamins and minerals that help support your health like Iron, Zinc, and Vitamin B12.


About two-thirds of the iron in your body is present in hemoglobin, the protein in your red blood cells that moves oxygen to your muscles and tissues. Adequate iron intake might also boost your immune system so you get sick less often. Iron plays a role in cell growth and differentiation as well.

One of the primary roles of zinc is to support a strong immune system. The mineral also aids in wound healing and cell division. Zinc encourages normal growth and plays a role in your ability to taste and smell as well.

Vitamin B12 encourages proper production of red blood cells and helps your neurological system work normally. The vitamin also plays a role in DNA synthesis, and might help protect you from developing cardiovascular disease.

  1. I so love baked tahong. When we dine out, I always ask for baked tahong. Too bad I can't cook/bake sa house dahil the mini market near our place does not have tahong. They only have bangus and tilapia Lang lagi.
