Product Information
  • XL mussels from New Zealand
  • Pasteurised and presented in half of their shell
  • These mussels are individually frozen so you don't have to use them all at once

From New Zealand, also known as green-lipped mussels owing to the emerald tinge along the shell edge. These mussels come attached to one of the two sides of their shell, which makes a convenient carrier for all sorts of toppings - we recommend breadcrumbs soaked in wine, with a touch of pepper. The green-lipped mussel is generally much larger than the European mussels you are probably familiar with. These mussels are pasteurised but usually need to be cooked before serving (***this information was updated in July 2021) - please follow the instuctions on the box. There are about 30 mussels in a box.

  • Recipe suggestion: Grilled Garlic Mussels
  • Customer review - "The mussels come frozen in their shells but defrost quickly.  Our favourite way to serve is as you do in New Zealand... with a topping such as Thai curry spices and coriander or 'bloody mary' tomato salsa and then under the grill for five minutes. The Fish Society service was wonderful.  I needed the mussels for a special party but mixed up my dates. I realised my mistake with just 24 hours to spare and the Society rushed my order overnight. Phew!"
