The Fish’s PEI Steamed Mussels

Tastemaker
By Kristi Kates | June 3, 2017

The latest bigwig of the bivalve world, PEI mussels — mussels that hail from Prince Edward Island, off Canada’s eastern coast — are sweeping the seafood world by storm. Their latest landfall: The Fish restaurant, just outside downtown Harbor Springs.

Steamed in white wine and finished with roasted garlic butter, these Canadian imports do their reputation proud. PEI mussels are known to be nothing if not reliable. Seems the tidal patterns and climate of their particular ocean home is conducive to raising mussels that are consistently tender, plump, and sweet.

The Fish’s simple preparation showcases this mid-sized mollusc’s mighty flavor. Pair a plate with the eatery’s toasted ciabatta bread, and you’ve got a sensational summer meal.
        
Find The Fish at 2983 S. State Street, 5.5 miles north of Harbor Springs (231) 526-3969, thefishharborsprings.com.
