Australian Blue Mussels
We grade, scrub and de-beard our mussels, then cook our mussels in their natural juices and spring water within an hour of harvest to guarantee that every mussel in the bag is full, sweet and delicious. Chilled and packed in convenient 650g single serve packs, our Cooked Australian Blue Mussels can be eaten straight from the bag, heated with your favourite sauce or folded through pasta or rice to create a restaurant-quality meal in seconds.
Can I eat an
Yes, mussels that do not open when heated can be eaten! This is an old wives tale, and with modern harvesting techniques, we can guarantee that every mussel in the packet will be 100% safe to eat, as long as they have been suitably stored below 4 degrees. Don’t throw away any that are unopened after cooking – prise open and eat!
What is the shelf life of sea-sure packed mussels?
We pack our mussels on the day of harvest, with a 10-day shelf life. We do have a use by date sticker attached to the bottom left hand side of the packaging, and if this is not evident, please return the mussels to where you purchased them, asking for a packet that does.
