What Makes Bouchot Mussels so special? 

In French, bouchot means “shellfish bed”. These dark blue-black molluscs take their name from a traditional aquaculture technique for mussels. The mussels are grown on ropes strung from wooden poles in the sea – the latter also known as “bouchots”. This way, the mussels are able to develop, away from predators such as crabs, which makes them more tender, meaty and free of grit and barnacles, with a cleaner flavour. 

Distinguished by their plump, orange-yellow flesh, these high-quality mussels can also be found labelled with an AOP ‘appellation d’origine protégée’ status, denoting their exclusivity to the Mont Saint-Michel bay.

Moreish Moules-Frites

Savour Bouchot Mussels in true French-Belgian fashion, in the form of the beloved dish Moules-Frite, available in 500g and 1 kg servings. Scarlett prepares the mussels in four different ways, featuring classic and contemporary flavours. 

Purists looking to enjoy the delicious mussels in all their glory can opt for the classic Marinière, a heady concoction of white wine, shallots, onions, celery, and parsley. 

For a fresh, punchier flavour profile that still lets the Bouchot Mussels shine – try the Tomato & Basil preparation, featuring a sweet and aromatic sauce. White wine is cooked down with shallots, onions, celery, and garlic, then lifted with the fragrant, fruity addition of tomato and basil. 

Unadulterated indulgence comes in the form of the Creamy Garlic version – perfect for palates craving rich yet homey comfort. The base of white wine, shallows, and onions welcomes the unique warmth of garlic, and the added cream creates a smooth, velvety sauce that complements the natural sweetness and creaminess of the mussels. 

Finally, Bouchot Mussels get a fragrant kick of local flavours in the Spice & Herbs option. The usual white wine base gets infused with aromatics and a hint of spice thanks to fresh lemongrass, kaffir lime, galangal, and chilli – resulting in an exciting, intense sauce.
