A Steaming Pot of Gold - Enriching celebrations right from the dinner plate

CHARLOTTETOWN, March 12 /PRNewswire/ - Legend has it that anyone who captures a leprechaun can force it to reveal the location of his fortune, which is kept in a pot of gold. This St. Patrick's Day, coming up on March 17, you can easily cook up or order a steaming pot of gold - leprechaun comes separately.

"Rated as "Super Green" by Seafood Watch and naturally rich in nutrients, create your own pot of gold with steamed Canadian Fresh Blue Cultivated Mussels, the perfect way to enrich any celebration," says Linda Duncan, Executive Director of the Mussel Industry Council. For an added Irish flare, go for a green curry or pesto sauce, or, for a more traditional feel, try Cream Sauce Beer and Garlic Steamed Mussels."A steaming pot of Fresh Cultivated Blue Mussels is a treasure chest indeed. Practically un-coaxed, the dark blue shell opens up to reveal golden meat high in Omega 3s, low in fat (2.2 g fat per 100 g mussel meat) and packed with protein. Mussels are also recognized world-wide as sustainable seafood - they feed naturally with no additives and their seed is also collected naturally from the environment where they are grown.

"Mussels are grown in all corners of the world," explains Duncan. "They are part of many cultures and have been for thousands of years. Affordable, healthy and delicious, Fresh Cultivated Blue Mussels easily add to the atmosphere of cultural celebrations, at home or at the restaurant."

The Mussel Industry Council hopes people will create their own luck of the Irish by serving up a steaming pot of golden Fresh Cultivated Blue Mussels this St. Patrick's Day.
