Porto-Muiños Mussels with Sweet Kombu in Salsa Brava

$14.00

We get very excited for any preparation of mussels that explores territory beyond the tried and true escabeche. Seaweed goes with all the sea meats, and we hope more producers pick up on this.

    I was really excited to try this tin. Personally, tinned mussels might not be for me (I’m not sure what it is about them), but I did keep going back for this tin. At the very least, the salsa brava was delicious. I toasted extra bread just to dip into the can and soak it up. I’m sure that fans of mussels would really like this one.

    A very tasty can of mussels, smashing even at room temp. Served it up to friends when dinner was running a bit late and they all enjoyed them.

    I think this might be my favorite tinned mussels. The mussels were so tender and tasty and the sauce is very addicting. I ate mine with some bread, lemon juice, and some thin slices of onion. I also really enjoyed the pieces of kombu inside. Highly recommend. This will be a pantry staple for me!

    I tried these on a whim because I wanted to try something with a different sauce. Everything else is escabeche. When I first cracked the tin, my first thought was that the muscles were especially large and plump looking. Then I tried one with the sauce, and fireworks!!! So flavorful. Sweet and complex. I had them alone and on a cracker. I drank the sauce when I was done. Highly recommend. 10/10

    We really enjoyed these mussels. The sauce is sweet and complex and a great change of pace from the usual escabeche (which is delish also). Probably our favorite mussels we’ve tried so far! Definitely get every last drop of the sauce with some crusty bread.

    Incredibly unique tin. I was struck by gorgeous red color upon opening. The flavor is subtly sweet, but not cloyingly so. It reminds me of a tapa I had in barcelona years ago. The mussels are cooked to perfection and melt in the mouth. The seaweed and onions provide nice textural elements. The can liquid is almost a broth, sweet and piquant on it’s own: don’t let it go to waste!
