INSTRUCTIONS

FRESH MUSSELS

When you buy mussels in a net or tray, be sure to keep them chilled (+2-7 degrees celcius) until use.

Before the mussels are packed by Vilsund Blue, they are cleaned and their "beard" (byssus) is removed; they are supplied ready for you to use in the kitchen.

Some of the mussels may be open, but it is perfectly safe to use them. When chilled, mussels go into hibernation and can open up a bit when you take them out of the package. Here´s how to Cook Limfjord mussels to perfection..

1Open tray

When you take the tray with mussels out of the refrigerator, be aware that there is still a vacuum in the package. Open the package, carefully cut the foil up on 3 sides of the package.

2Drain the tray for water.

The mussels gives a little water in the tray during storage and transport. We recommend you pour this off before cooking. Look at the content and discard if necessary. mussels with broken shells.

3Prepare

Stirfry you favorite vegetables and add the mussels, directly from the tray into the pot together with liquid (wine, applecider, beer etc). After cooking discard mussels that do not open during cooking.

VILSUND BLUE

Fishermen have harvested shellfish in the Limfjord for several hundred years. The Danish Crown officially organized this practice as an industry in 1851 and in 1900, the Limfjord Company really put Wind in its sails and laid the Foundation to develop the Limfjord shellfish business as we know it today.

in 1986, Vilsund Muslinge Industri A/S was established, and in 2010 the Limfjord Company and Vilsund merged to form Vilsund Blue A/S, a Danish Company with roots and headquarters in Nykøbing Mors. In 2010, Vilsund Blue A/S was the first mussel producer to have its mussel and oyster production practices MSC certified as sustainable fishing.

Product Development and quality are the cornerstones of Vilsund Blue A/S. in 2014, 2015 and 2016 we reached the Seafood Excellence Global Awards finals, and in 2014 we were awarded the prize for our Mussel Powder, a flavour enhancer for food preparation that we make during mussel production. In 2015, Vilsund Blue A/S was honoured with the prestigious Børsens Smagspris 2015 for its Vilsund Premium Limfjord blue mussels.

Vilsund Blue A/S employs 70 dedicated workers at its three industrial sites in Nykøbing Mors.
