This catch of the day features a box of Live Fresh Mussels.  These locally grown black mussels are great alternative to imported frozen mussels, as it supports local jobs and arrives at your door fresh and tasty.  You get the same great taste of the ocean with out taking a mussel from the sea.  We have carefully selected this for you to enjoy with your family or friends.

  • 1 x Box of live Black Mussels ( +_2.3-2.4kg per box)

This box is ideal for any mussel lover to add some variety into their week day cooking or on the braai. We have taken care of the mess, you look after the rest. Your mussels will arrive in a bag inside a polybox, to make it easy to use at home.  

Instructions:

What to do if you see an open mussel?

 If you picked them in the wild we would suggest discarding open ones, as you would not be sure on how long they have been dead for and what temperature fluctuations they have occurred.

 However for our farmed mussels, where you find one open, we refer to this as chilled, if the cold chain of supply has remained intact there should be no problem if steamed/cooked correctly. I always promote, listen to your nose. If it smells bad avoid/discard.  Mussels should smell like the ocean, light salty smell.

 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/ broken shell/ open etc…

 Mussels are best with the “beard” removed, once pulling the beard out the mussel will die.  Remember to steam your mussels, do not submerge in a pot of water.  High temperature for a very short cooking time (4-7Minutes) is all you need.  Over cooking will lead them  to shrinking and only leaving a small film of meat against the shell.

 We suggest enjoying your mussels fresh.  However should something come up and you need to freeze them to use another day we suggest you lightly steam them first.

 A mussels “meat” never fills the entire void of the shell.  Around 30% of the volume in “meat”.  This however fluctuates due to seasons.  Winter months mussels are more plump with the colder waters.  In summer they thin out as they spawn.  Sometimes with spawning they can have an unfamiliar smell, simply rinse.

      Fresh black mussel box

      The mussels were delivered exactly as described, live in an ice box. As they are farmed in Saldanha Bay and not taken off the rocks, it is a sustainable harvest with the advantage of virtually no sand to deal with in the cooking process. We had some as a starter, simply steamed open on the day of delivery. The rest were kept under a wet cloth in the fridge and were as fresh the next evening when we cooked a Thai Red Mussel Curry. Delicious!

      Freshest catch to the door and onto your plate.

      So you wake up some random Tuesday morning. You have FRESH seafood in the mind. The kind of fresh where your fishing rod suddenly bends down from it's 45-degree angle to the water and the drag finally stops moving and buzzing. The kind of fresh where you forage for black mussels one early morning at low tide in Scarborough. This is the feeling, sea breeze smell and quality you get when you open the cooler box delivered to your door. Highly recommended, quality product. Dr Jozef Kriek III

      Super fresh for healthy, mid-week quick meal

      When they say "Live Box" they mean "Live Box". You know these mussels are fresh because they still respond when they arrive. If you don't want to use them immediately, just take out the packaging and place in a bowl in the fridge with a cold wet cloth over the bowl to keep them going. Mussels are super healthy to make, FAST and EASY!! This makes them perfect for mid-week meals. We love Jamie Oliver's Thai mussels. Give it a try!
