These magnificent molluscs from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island have a satisfyingly rich and sweet taste: almost a blend of oysters and clams. Ours come from Canadian Cove, the premier mussel producer in North America. Canadian Cove uses long lines for their low-density aquaculture so there is no dragging the sea floor during harvest. And their meaty mussels come ready-to-cook in uniform sizes to make dinner a breeze.
Enjoy them with a glass of your favourite white wine or cook them in a savoury sauce like this coconut curry. For mussel recipes, visit canadiancove.com.
