      Instructions
      1. Remove the mussel meats from their shells. Reserve 24 half shells (discard the rest) and place the shells on a broiling pan or baking sheet. Return the meats to the shells.
      2. In a dry (no oil) frying pan, toast the almonds over medium heat, shaking the pan regularly until the almonds are lightly colored. Remove from the pan and let cool.
      3. In a bowl, combine the almonds, rice, dates, scallion, olive oil, stock, coriander, mint, black pepper, salt, and cayenne. Mix thoroughly and taste for salt.
      4. Top each mussel with about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the rice mixture and pack down lightly
      5. Broil on 'High' for about 1 minute until heated through. If desired, sprinkle with panko crumbs and broil again briefly until crumbs are golden.
