Translated from Japanese: I enjoyed the organic mussels, so I tried these as well.
The taste is not as good as organic mussels, but the price is reasonable and the mussels can be easily used in dishes as they are.
They’re also delicious cooked with saffron rice.
Translated from Japanese: I give these to my dog to take care of their joints.
They’re convenient and useful because you can thaw only the amount you need as they’re frozen separately.
Great quality mussels from New Zealand!
Handy to keep in the freezer and just take out enough mussels for each meal.
