Are you a ‘greenie’ or a ‘bluie’?

You are likely familiar with New Zealand’s green mussels and European black/blue mussels, but have you tried Australian blue mussels?

Green mussels tend to be larger meatier and milder in flavour. They are smaller, less meaty and richer in flavour compared to green mussels. European mussles can often be a bit gritty due to their growing conditions.

By comparison, Australian ‘blues’, while smaller than NZ greens, are known for a slightly sweeter taste and smooth texture in their plump meat. You owe it to yourself to taste the difference!
