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.
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.
- 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
- Saute the garlic in the oil until it just starts to change color
- Add in the bok choy and bean sprouts and cook for 2-5 minutes at medium heat or until they are almost cooked
- Add in the yakisoba noodles and mussels, then cook until heated completely. This usually only takes a couple minutes
- 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.
