Province Icons2 07 Mussels PEI Newfoundland NS Quebec BC


The marvellous mollusks from Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Quebec and British Columbia are some of the world's finest mussels. Often referred to as blue mussels, gallo mussels or bay mussels, these little treasures have a blue-black shell on the outside and a shiny, iridescent interior. With a robust yet delicate flavour profile, mussels possess a slightly sweet, oceanic taste.

If you've never tried mussels, you're in for a treat. Their taste can be likened to a fusion between clams and oysters but with a tender and juicy texture. Many Canadians enjoy them steamed, often accompanied by a simple garlic and white wine sauce. A bucket of mussels is a sharable treat, and they quickly disappear from appetizer platters.
