  • About

    A BOX FILLED WITH FRESH OCEAN FLAVOUR

    Mussels are at their best when they are fresh, and our black mussel live box delivers this freshness to your door. These mussels are responsibly farmed on the west coast of South Africa, which means that they not only offer superior freshness, but also support local industry and create jobs. Just like oysters, mussels are filter feeders and actually improve the water quality where they are farmed.

    CONTENTS

    1 x Box of live black mussels (approx. 2.3 - 2.4kg per box)

  • Instructions

    Mussels are live/ still breathing when they are harvested and remain so for 3-4 days from harvest if handled correctly. When keeping them at home, remove from the plastic bag and allow them to breath, placing them in a bowl with a damp towel over them, do not let them be submerged in water. We check all mussels before dispatching them daily and remove any that may look problematic. If you find an open mussel in the wild, we suggest you throw it out as you do not know when it opened, but because our live mussels are inspected before going out, you should not have a problem. If you wish to freeze these mussels, we suggest steaming them beforehand.

    Note: Do not over cook them the meat will shrink.

    Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.

  • Eco rating

  • Fishwife Recipes

    Braaied Black Mussels

    While mussels can be prepared in a variety of ways, our partner site The Fishwife shows us just how easy they are to braai. You will need:

    • 1.5 kg black mussels
    • 170g cheese (grated)
    • 5g chives (finely chopped)
    • 1 tsp garlic
    • 125g butter
    • Salt & pepper

    Preparation:

    1. In a pot with a small amount of water at the bottom, steam the mussels for approximately 8 minutes.
    2. While the mussels are steaming, combine the garlic and butter.
    3. Season with salt & pepper and spice of choice
    4. De-beard the mussels.
    5. Open the mussels discarding the half shells with no meat.
    6. Place the remaining mussel shells with meat on a tray and spoon a decent amount of garlic butter into each shell.
    7. Sprinkle the mussels with the grated cheese and chives.
    8. Season with salt and pepper.
    9. Braai until garlic butter is bubbling and cheese has melted.
    10. Enjoy straight off the fire if you wish!

          Moules & Frites

          Better than they have it in Belgium. As fresh as if i'd just spent an hour cursing on the rocks picking them myself. We de-shelled the leftovers - froze them in brine and had them in a pasta a few nights later.

          Super fresh

          Utterly delicious. The smell of the ocean filled my kitchen when I began cleaning them. Only a couple were cracked or open, which I thought was good odds. I steamed them in a large pot with white wine, garlic, spring onions and chilli and they were scrumptious. Reminds me of my teen years on the West Coat. Definitely ordering again.
