    Thaw the mussels. Defrost better not in the microwave, but under a stream of warm water. Be sure to remove from the mussels all the protruding fibers and roots, you do not need to gut them. Rinse the seafood well again and place in a colander to glass all the water.

When the onions are soft, add carrots to it. Stir slightly while frying the onion-carrot mixture for a few minutes. Finely chop the garlic and add it to the prepared roasted vegetables.
