    Storage

    Our Smoked Mussels will keep for up to 5 years if kept in a cool place.

    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.
