Supplied by the award-winning (and very local) Exmouth Mussels, these delicious live mussels are the real deal; having spent their lives eating plankton in the sparkling waters of the Exe, their plump meat is full of flavour – we think they’re the best we’ve tasted.
Our fishing vessels work out of Exmouth, Brixham and Newlyn, and operate in accordance with the Seafood Responsible Fishing Scheme. They keep us well topped up most days with a selection of fresh fish and shellfish, and a catch can often be on its way to the Greendale farm shop within hours of leaving the sea. If we can’t catch it ourselves, we source only from trusted suppliers with standards as high as our own. The fish available may vary, depending on the season, but a delicious variety is always to be found on our fish counter. From whole fish to fillets, live lobsters to shrimp, our wide selection is sold in a choice of portion sizes and prepared for your convenience by our skilled fishmongers.
These mussels are supplied live, having been flushed with oxygen before being sealed into their pack. Refrigerate them and keep the pack sealed until you are ready to cook them – when you need them, open the pack and rinse the mussels (don’t soak them, as they may die from lack of oxygen). Discard any mussels that won’t close - live mussels will close when tapped - and then cook. If all the mussels are closed when you remove the pack from the fridge, it’s likely that they have ‘shut down’ due to the cold, rather than died. Give them a rinse (don’t leave them in water) and let them come up to room temperature, then give them another quick rinse and stir them up gently with your hands. You can then check to see if they close when tapped.
It’s hard to beat the classic French dish, Moules Marinière, in which the mussels are cooked in their shells in a sauce of onions, garlic, white wine cream and parsley
