Mussels have been described as having a taste comparable to a combination of Clam and Oyster, but they have their own subtle taste, slightly salty and even reminiscent of a mushroom. They have what the Japanese call umami, a sixth taste that describes something savory and a bit meaty. Delivered frozen in 1Kg packs.

Mussels are likely the sort of thing that you’d order at an old school French restaurant, but would never pick up at the store. (Maybe one time you saw a recipe asking you to “remove their beards” and have been scarred ever since.) But mussels are one of the easiest things on the planet to cook. Every day you’re not cooking mussels, you’re missing out on making a simple meal that’ll impress your friends, family, co-workers, church elders, and backgammon partners. They are also one of the most environmentally-friendly proteins around. Mussels mature in frigid water around the world eating nothing but plankton and krill while they actually filter the water around them. It’s a win-win for your dinner and the environment.

If you’ve never ventured down the mussel path before, don’t worry. “People shouldn’t be scared to cook mussels because all they need is a really, really gentle heat and they’ll open straight up,” says Louis Tikaram, executive chef of West Hollywood’s E.P. Restaurant. “Basically once they’re open, they’re cooked—you can’t have a better kind of cooking guide than a mussel opening up to let you know that it’s ready to eat.” In case you’re still not confident in your abilities, fear not. We asked Tikaram and chef Dominique Ansel—Cronut creator and expert on all things edible and French—to share more of their mussel cooking wisdom to make things more straightforward.
