Ask a question
- The first answer is simple. Pour hot water into a large pot, enough to cover and float the package. Open the outer packaging and place the inner package into the water. Do not put the mussels directly into the water. They will be fine this way but they taste better and are easier to make if you just boil the whole pack. The cooking time is totally arbitrary. At least thaw them. No specific temperature. I usually leave them in the hot water (with the burner on) until the package puffs up and the juice inside turns milky white. They will be quite firm if you do it this way. Drain and serve. All clam and crab type shellfish are fully cooked when you buy them frozen. You cannot freeze and transport uncooked shellfish of this type. It is too dangerous, and the food *will* spoil, so you never have to worry about that. You know they are safe to eat because someone processed them and took the dead ones out. There is always a chance that an unopened mussel is missed and you should always be on the lookout for funky looking clams. I typically will throw out 1-2 mussels per package.by Ginko882/16/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- I rinse all the ice off the mussels. I put quart of chicken stock, diced garlic and shallots, as much as you like, bring to a boil in a pan. Then add white wine, bring to boil, put in the mussels and cook 10-15 minutes. Serve. We have never gotten a bad one in all the years we have eaten them. The cooking directions are on the side of the bag.by PAP542/16/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- MUSSEL MISCONCEPTIONS First off, I eat mussels at least twice a week. I have never been sick. 1st misconception, don't eat mussels that aren't open after cooking. This is both true and false. Mussels that are bought in frozen bags are sorted par-cooked and immediately frozen in four steps. 1st and most important (to us) is sorting. The live are separated from dead mussels then quickly sent to the DE-bearding cooking and freezing in a quick assembly line. Live mussels from the fish market are a different story. If they die they start to decompose, collect sand and nasty junk. If opened you can smell the nasty. The mussels that go through the assembly line don't have the time to start the decomposition process. 2nd misconception- mussels have to be overcooked to kill bacteria. I admit to eating raw mussels! Like a oyster they can be safely eaten raw. But please take the steps to limit your risk (just like raw fish and oysters ect)...for fun Google the subject What makes a mussel poisonous is the area they live in. Red tide and dangerous plankton. They are filter feeders that filter micro organisms. The organisms poison the meat. no amount of cooking will remove poisonous meat or chemical contamination. DON'T PICK AND EAT MUSSELS LOCALLY. Enjoy your mussels-open the unopened mussels and check it out. Does it smell? is there sand in it? some of the best mussels Ive tasted have been in closed shells steaming in the their own juicesby cookerofmussels1/31/2016Was this answer helpful?

- There are cooking directions on the side panels of the bag. Microwave on one side, stove top on the other side. The mussels are already cleaned, de-bearded, and cooked before they are frozen. All you have to do is heat and serve, but sometimes I just thaw them if I want to eat them chilled like the New Zealand mussels at my local Chinese buffet. I don't know how they get the mussels closed after they cook them, but that's how they come in the package. Even the ones that don't open back up after heating them seem to be ok after forcing them open. Hope this helps.by NiTeMaRe632/28/2011Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
Q. I love these mussels, however lately I have noticed the meat is much smaller and less tasty. If this is a seasonal thing, what can I look for ?
- Yes this is typically a seasonal thing. I have noticed the mussels vary in size with this company, but that is standard for any company. If the whole batch is smaller, then yes it is a seasonal issue. I have picked fresh mussels off rocks in the pacific, and the mussels on any given rock can range in size from 1/4 inch to as big as 3 inches. Basically what you see is what you get. The larger the shell, the larger the mussel. If you get a batch of small mussels in large shells then they were at a low point nutrient-wise in the year. wait a few weeks and buy again.by Ginko888/24/2015Was this answer helpful?

- You are cooking them too long. Defrost them first, Cook only till they open. Cook in chicken stock, white wine and garlic.by PAP5411/12/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- The mussels, if they don't open...just open with a knife. They are already cooked before frozen, we have never been sicken by any that did not open.by PAP549/24/2013Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- The mussels are pre-cooked and presumably checked well before they are cooked and packaged. After re-heating them according to directions, I just force the unopened ones open and eat them and I haven't had any problems. A local Chinese buffet has these sometimes and they too have the problem of some mussels not opening after re-heating them. What I would like to know is how they close the cooked mussels before packaging them.by NiTeMaRe6312/8/2012Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
