Our Pacific Blue mussels (Mytilus trossulus) are the sweetest and meatiest you’ll ever taste. 

We’ve tweaked the flavor until it’s just right – not too salty or smoky – and added select organic seasonings. 

These scrumptious treats can be enjoyed right out of the can, or served with a little chevre on a cracker with perhaps a sprig of dill. 

And they're decidedly delicious in pasta dishes, seafood stews, or a straight smoked-mussel chowder. Delish!
Ingredients:
Pacific Blue mussels, Organic onion powder, Organic garlic powder, Organic high-oleic sunflower oil, Organic brown sugar, Sea salt, Citric acid, Natural wood smoke

Serving ideas
  • Add to a simple salad or antipasto.
  • Serve on pizza with a caponata base.
  • Add to a puttanesca sauce with tomatoes, capers and basil.
  • Serve with crackers or as a topping for toasted bread (bruschetta), with diced tomatoes, basil, and grated Parmesan or Romano cheese.
To moderate the taste and add lusciouness and healthful antioxidants, drain the mussels well and toss with organic extra virgin olive oil (you can also add a touch of dried herbs, such as oregano, tarragon, sage, or thyme).
