live, from New Zealand

New Zealand green lipped mussels, steamed and served with shrimp over a bed of linguine and roasted grape tomatoes.  (Is there anything sweeter than grape tomatoes with olive oil and cracked pepper roasted in the over for about ten minutes?)

Mussels were courtesy of my shellfish guy Uncle Chuck.  The New Zealand mussels are vacuum packed, then have pure oxygen injected into the bag.  They arrive fresh and very much alive.  Thanks, Chuck.

Sunny and low 60's tomorrow.  I can't wait.
