Pacific Blue mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) are a favorite of the Pacific Northwest, with their delicate, yet complex flavor and buttery texture.
Also known as “Mediterranean” mussels, ours are line-grown in the sparkling clean waters off Washington State, partially cooked, and free of grit.
Safe and easy to enjoy
By law, each batch is tested and certified by the State of Washington as safe to eat raw, before the mussels are harvested.
Our mussels can be thawed and consumed as is, or cooked further from frozen (no thawing required), as you prefer. After being cleaned and vacuum-packed, our mussels undergo immersion in hot water (175°F) for 13 minutes — a process that pasteurizes and partially cooks the mussels, making it very easy to pull the meat from the shell.
Note: The “nectar” in the bags is the result of the cooking process and natural juices from the mussels.
Superior to supermarket mussels!
Standard mussels are bottom-grown off the U.S. or Canadian Atlantic coasts, and harvested by dredges — a cheaper method that introduces grit and can damage the seafloor ecosystem.
This is why standard blue mussels often cost less than ours per pound. While ours offer more meat and are much more tasty and satisfying — and designated as sustainable by the Monterey Bay Aquarium “Best Choice” program!
