  • 1kg Kinkawooka Pot Ready Mussels
  • 1 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 chillies, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 cloves of garlic, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika


1 Open the pack of Kinkawooka Pot Ready mussels and strain off the water. Give them a quick rinse under cold water.

2 Heat up a pot with approximately 1cm of water. When the water is boiling, add the mussels and cover with a lid. Steam them for a couple of minutes, stirring every minute or so until they open.

3 Remove from the heat and strain the mussels off, keeping some of the liquid in a bowl.

4 Heat the cup of white wine vinegar, sugar and water in a pot until it reaches boiling point. Add garlic, chilli, mustard seeds, peppercorns and paprika and put aside to cool.

5 Remove the mussel meat from the shells and place in a sterilised jar.

6 Once the marinade has cooled, pour over the mussels and seal the jar.

7 Mussels will last up to 3 months in the jar in the fridge.
