Don’t have time to travel up to Maine to experience these mussels first-hand? No worries. We will bring our authentic, absolutely delicious Bangs Island Maine Mussels and PEI Canadian Blue Mussels overnight directly to your front door!
Our locally-popular mussels are rope-grown in the cold Atlantic and are evenly sized, making them an ideal culinary choice for both beginners and well-respected chefs. In fact, many of the premier restaurants in Maine serve these delicious, flavorful mussels, as they are rarely found in markets outside of the New England region, making them a one-of-a-kind product to be shipped to your doorstep!
For every 2 pound order of Bangs Island Maine Mussels, you will receive 24-32 mussels; for a 2 pound order of PEI Canadian Blue Mussels, you will receive 50-60 mussels. This is how different the sizes really are between these two species.
When it comes to cooking these select mussels, there are endless possibilities! You can learn the basics on preparing mussels in our guide here. For more culinary inspiration, think about tossing our mussels in a white wine and garlic sauce, letting them saute until they open up (that’s how you know they’re cooked).
You can also create Belgian-style moules-frites at home with cooked mussels and French fries. Don’t be scared to add mussels in with your next pasta dish either as you add some Italian flare!
Mussels, in general, are a highly nutritious shellfish jam-packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals to help support a healthy lifestyle. A 3 oz. serving of mussels packs a whopping 20 grams of protein, compared to just 4 grams of fat, providing 40% of the daily protein needed by the average adult. Protein plays a multitude of roles in building muscle, boosting your immune system, strengthening your bones, and even healing injuries. Mussels also contain vitamins B12, which aids in brain functionality, digestion, and sleeping better; vitamin C, which aids in immunity and repairing the body; and iron to support muscle repair and regulate cellular growth. Iron also aids in preventing the most common form of anemia, which can cause fatigue and weakness.
Mussels are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids (which are absolutely necessary for heart health and lowering blood pressure), zinc, and the antioxidant selenium. With all of this being said, it’s clear that mussels provide a ton of health benefits and nutrients that your body craves, without many calories, making it an ideal dish for weight loss.
