  • 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.

  • Sustainability

    Our mussels are sourced from sustainable farms along the west coast of South Africa. Baby mussels are seeded onto long ropes, which are placed in the ocean and then raised when the mussels reach maturity. These cultivated mussels actually serve to clean the water making this farming practise highly sustainable.

    GEAR USED : Farmed on ropes

    SUPPORTING LOCALS : Yes

    DISTANCE TRAVELLED : 100km

  • 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!

          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
