Fun Fact

Looking for a new drink? Mussel juice is delicious when heated and mixed with melted butter! You can also substitute mussel juice for clam juice in chilled tomato juice.

Product Preparation

We like to stuff the half shell of Green Mussels with herbed bread crumb, drizzle with a bit of olive oil and bake them until golden brown. You may also want to steam them in garlic and beer. Be sure to dip the meat into the flavorful broth!

Product Nutrition
