Mussels are some of the most delicious, best value seafood you’ll find, due to them being easily rope-grown and harvested. They’re oblong shaped, usually 2-3 inches long and a gorgeous navy blue colour. Their meat is bright orange and very flavoursome – anyone in the know with mussels uses an empty shell as a pair of tongs to get the meat out of the others. They make a fabulous as a starter or a main and are often cooked in shallots, cream and white wine. In Cornwall you’ll commonly find them cooked in the local cider – a delicious treat to try at home too! Like most shellfish, mussels really don’t need a long cook time – a few minutes steamed in the sauce just enough to open their shells will mean you’ll get the most tender meat.
Store live shellfish in the salad drawer of your refrigerator covered with a damp tea towel. Do not immerse them in water and discard any that do not open or close when tapped lightly. Rinse with fresh water before cooking. Live shellfish has a limited shelf life - enjoy within 2 days. Must be cooked before freezing.
