Kinkawooka mussels - yum
Over the weekend I went to the the Sunday Farmers Market (at the Showground, Goodwood).
I bought a 1kg pack of Kinkawooka of mussels from the Eyre Peninsular - available year round, the size varies on the season. $9 per kg for non members. Fantastic value!
I cooked thin spaghetti, boiled mussels for 3m45s tossed in a sauce of finely cut (half) onion and garlic, Italian parsley, butter, oil, cream and home made Harissa.
So simple and fantastic.
Left overs for lunch tomorrow. Yum!
Next time at the Market, buy a pack of mussels.
They are live and in oxygenated saltwater and keep in the fridge for 10 days.
The female mussels are orange in colour whilst the males are creamy white.
There seem to be more females than males. Further studies are required.
Mussels are rich in omega 3, iodine, zinc and selenium - so go for it.
Also they have more iron content than fillet steak.
On reflection, that would be a rather small steak.
Give them a try - they are so sweet!
And, don't forget, the shells go in the green recycling bin.
Oyster shells, mussel shells, crab shells/claws and lobster leftovers go in the green recycle bin.
