You'll often find mussels, shell and all, in seafood dishes like chowders and pastas. Steamed mussels can be served, still in the shell, with a creamy sauce. If you prefer to enjoy your mussels without the shells, you can shuck them and then batter and deep fry them.
***Mussells in the shell are live. When shipping shell stock/live product, we strongly suggest shipping them Next Day Air. Products are live when they leave our facility, however, we cannot guarantee they will be live upon receipt.***
