Our smoked 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, with a little cheese and dill on a cracker, or in pasta dishes, seafood stews, or a straight smoked-mussel chowder. Delish!
