Autumn is near and with the falling leaves, Canadians crave warm comfort food!

Farmed mussels are the sustainable seafood “Best Choice” feature for September as they can be used in everything from flavourful soups and stews to simply steamed and served as they are.

Unlike some seafood choices, mussels are also an ideal aquaculture option as they reproduce quickly and they often improve the ocean habitat as filter feeders. They are also not as susceptible to disease organisms and other parasites that other seafood like fin fish are. Get inspired at home today with a few mussel recipes from our Kitchen Corner!
