    How many museels should you buy?

    It really depends how hungry you are and what you're cooking, but we'd usually recommend 0.5kg per person, so this 1kg bag will feed 2 people.

     

    *Live shellfish experience water loss once packed as their shells open - this means weights will vary

    • How should I store my mussels?

      Live mussels (without shells removed) should be stored in open containers in the fridge, loosely covered with clean, damp paper towels or cloths to prevent them from drying out. The optimum storage temperature is 4-8°C. Temperatures of 1°C or lower (especially freezing temperatures less than 0°C) can kill shellfish.

       

      Do not store shellfish:

      In airtight containers (boxes or bags) because they need to breathe

      In water or directly on ice since the fresh water may drown them

       

      Do:

      Discard mussels, oysters, clams or any other live shellfish if their shells crack or break

      Discard any shellfish if the shells are open and do not close when you tap them - live shellfish will "clam up" if their shells are tapped
