OYSTERS, MUSSELS, CLAMS, COCKLES & WHELKS

To ensure utmost freshness we require 48 hours notice on our oysters, mussels and clams.  

Our cockles and whelks are stock items available year round. 

CORNISH MUSSELS


Our common blue mussels are rope grown in Cornish waters until they are mature.  They are then harvested and depurated for 40+ hours in purified flowing water with a powerful ultra violet light to remove mud and other impurities.  Live mussels should close when tapped on a solid surface and open when cooked.  


Add cleaned and rinsed mussels with a glass of dry white wine to softened onion, garlic.  Cover, simmer and shake for a few minutes until all the mussels are open.  Add pepper and cream and simmer for a few more minutes.  Sprinkle over parsley and lemon juice.  Congratulations you have just cooked classic Moules Mariniere!  

Special Order: 48 hours notice required.  1 pack size is available.

COCKLES


Traditionally sold in pints because the vendors lacked scales and were trading outside pubs...  


Cockles are great in seafood pies, tossed into salads, in a bacon, tomato and potato soup, in a clam chowder, in risottos, paellas and pasta sauces.   

2 weight options are available.

WHELKS


Some call whelks the next oyster!  Stir fried whelks on crispy noodles.  Snail salad: olive oil, cider vinegar, chopped fresh herbs, grated lemon zest, balsamic vinegar, chopped celery and red onion, olives, capers; mixed well and covered in the fridge for 2 hours.  Stir and check seasoning before serving with crusty homemade garlic bread.
