3 Favorite Greenlip Mussels Recipes

Greenlip mussels are one of the most highly prized varieties of the seafood, for their spectacular flavor and freshness. They come from some of the world's coldest and freshest waters, being endemic to New Zealand. Greenlip mussels contain five different kinds of omega-3 fatty acids, which mean that you can eat something delicious that is also extremely healthy by popping them on top of your next seafood delivery order! They usually come smoked from your online fresh fish store, so are incredibly quick and easy to prepare. Today we’re looking at some of our favorite ways to incorporate them in recipes.
This recipe calls for around 50 greenlip mussels -- but you can easily calculate different quantity proportions of the other ingredients to match the number of greenlip mussels in your seafood delivery. The greenlip mussels are simply baked, and have a sauce of shallots, anchovies, diced/blanched tomatoes, garlic, chilli and lemon zest topping them. They are baked with a gorgeous herb crust, utilizing fresh herbs and fresh breadcrumbs. The recipe is divine … a credit to good seafood!
A simple and sweet recipe with a touch of exoticism. In many cases, the Greenlip mussels seafood delivery is not the most expensive part of the dish -- getting genuine saffron threads is! The whipping cream, white wine, and leeks all dance their flavors around the beautiful greenlip mussels. None of the mussel juices that are extracted during cooking are wasted, they go right back into the dish for added flavor. You'll need a Dutch oven.
This recipe is much simpler than it tastes -- it's actually very easy to prepare. Everyone loves mussels (indeed, anything from your freshseafood delivery!) with garlic, and there is plenty in this recipe. Chilis, another popular accompaniment, are included, but it is the lemongrass, coconut milk and coriander which give this dish its unique Asian flavor. You can add a splash of bourbon if desired also!
