Mussels Sakamushi /Steamed in Sake

Published: : Last update:2014/01/14 Seafoods , , ,

Today’s recipe is “Mussels Sakamushi/ Steamed in Sake”.

Prince Edward Island is one of  the major source of mussels in eastern Canada.
It is also famous for “Anne of Green Gables” in Japan.

I got very fresh mussels from PEI.
They are farm raised and have  an information tag on each bag.
Check the tag and “Best Before” date.

It is common to steam in white wine but we use sake instead of wine.
Try this Japanese style “Sakamushi” /steam in SAKE.

Do you know “Ontario Spring Water Sake Company”?
They brew “Sake” in Toronto.
They brew Real Sake in the same style as in Japan.


These are their products. “IZUMI-Genshu”.↓


Visit their web site for more information about Sake.

Try their high quality Sake! 

It is very good, off course, but cooks with their Sake.
You must feel differently.

You can get “IZUMI-Genshu” at SAQ.

It is far from Montreal but it is worth going!

I hope they keep brewing good sake.
