The “Big Splash Seacuterie” Charcuterie Board

Charcuterie boards are an entertainer’s best friend! They’re simple to make, require minimal cooking, and they’re flexible, allowing you to incorporate many ingredients you already have. Use our Canadian Seafood board as a template or to inspire your custom creation.

Health Benefits of Mussels

  • Vitality & Growth: Mussels are an excellent source of Vitamin B12, aiding energy metabolism and red blood cell formation while also supporting tissue formation.
  • Bone Health & Immunity: As a source of Vitamin A, C and E, mussels may aid bone and tooth development, help maintain healthy skin, and contribute to the normal function of the immune system.
  • Antioxidant Powerhouse: As an excellent source of selenium and a good source of zinc, mussels deliver antioxidants that defend against oxidative stress and have a factor in energy metabolism and tissue formation.
