Mussels

Mytilus Edulis

Very little effort is required to enjoy Mussels. But whilst Clams and Oysters are commonly eaten raw, simply steaming mussels in a large pan until the shells open will unlock their slightly salty taste. They are also delicious when paired with a wide variety of flavours; not only does the famous French dish, ‘Moules marinières’, mix mussels with white wine, shallots, garlic and herbs, but mussels also taste delicious when used in seafood stew, pasta, risotto and paella dishes. Interestingly, Mussel meat is also packed with protein with very little fat, and contains half the calories of beef!

These freshwater, bivalve molluscs anchor themselves to rocky shorelines with their byssal threads, and although they can be found all over the world, they are particularly abundant in cooler, coastal waters. As one of the most environmentally sound shellfish available, they are also incredibly economical and can be sourced without a hefty price tag.

From the production team, to our drivers, to the skippers and crews who go out daily and catch our fish for market, it’s the passion, skill and knowledge of our people that make My Fish Company the go-to supplier for many chefs throughout the North West.
