Cooked mussel meat

The Mytilus chilensis mussel is a bivalve commonly known as a mussel.

It is recognisable by its black shell and orange flesh and differs from Mytilus edulis by its blue-black, brown or sometimes brown shell with black stripes.

It is harvested all year round in Chile, on ropes.

The absence of any chemical treatment allows their taste qualities to be fully expressed.

We sell them cooked mussel meat. Mytilus edulis can also be sold in this form.

Enjoy them as cooked shells, in seafood cocktails or in puff pastry.
