I envision much butter and minced garlic, with a big squirt of lemon juice.
Yes, if we can get them here, you can get them there I am certain.
Call first to be sure.
Our Costco always, year round has mussels and clams. Both farm raised.
Now don't lose interest.
I do not like most anything farm raised, especially shrimp and salmon. But Costco searches the globe for the very best to put in their stores.
The clams (little necks)are raised in the FL. Keys! The mussels are raised in Canada. Both are raised suspended in the water column. They are very clean and as you can see, only a few were dead when I washed them.
Both are raised in the ocean, not in man made ponds. You need to research this. I did and was extremely impressed.
This is why they are so good and very inexpensive.
The 5Lbs of mussels cost under $15.00.
The farm raised salmon is also farm raised in the ocean. So ity tastes like wild caught salmon. Very good. Do not waste your money on the wild caught Sockeye. The Kirkland brand Atlantic farm raised are just as good and 1/2 the price.
Thanks everyone for the suggestions. My friend is coming over as he is out of garlic. (crazy huh)! I may just fill a bag of mussels for him as I have way more than I can eat. I think?
