Mussels are thin-shelled, elongated clams, usually dark blue in color. They may have a strong aroma, natural to this shellfish. Scrub to remove any mud or sand. Some fresh clams or mussels may be open upon arrival. After cooking, all shells should open up. Discard any that may remain closed.
Note: If you received fresh clams or mussels and can’t cook them today, place them in a bowl and refrigerate for up to one day, covered with the moist pad included in the cooler.

To Prepare:
  • Steam for 3-5 minutes in 1" of liquid: water, wine, tomato sauce, etc., until just after they open their shell.
  • Remove the beard (the membrane that stores sand and grit) by simply pulling it away from the meat.
  • Serve mussels over pasta or in bowls with bread on the side to soak up the juice.
  • Save the clear cooking juices to make soup or prepare sauces.
