Once more I have a nice amount of wild harvested mussels to something with.  These are a different type than the bay mussels I harvested last time.  These are the California mussels that live along rocky outcrops all over any rocky habitat throughout the Oregon coast.  And I found a bonus in these mussels.  There were several small pearls that I found while cleaning them.

Lots of mini pearls that were embedded in the mussels.

They are not very big, but it was fun to find them.  For this batch of mussels I am going to stir fry them with some veggies and Yakisoba noodles.  Stir frying is a very quick and easy way to make a quick meal.  The noodles are already cooked so they just need to be warmed up.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of yakisoba noodles
  • 2 cups fresh bok choy
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 8 oz cooked and shelled mussels
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or oil of choice
  1. Saute the garlic in the oil until it just starts to change color
  2. Add in the bok choy and bean sprouts and cook for 2-5 minutes at medium heat or until they are almost cooked
  3. Add in the yakisoba noodles and mussels, then cook until heated completely.  This usually only takes a couple minutes
  4. At this point you can add in any sauce that you like for flavoring.  I am just adding a light soy sauce to the mix.
