1 Tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
2 spring onions, finely chopped

  1. Rinse fresh PEI Mussels under tap water. Tap any mussels that are still open and discard any that do not close after being tapped and rinsed. Set aside.

  3. When the mussels have cooled, remove the mussel meat from shells. 
  4. Add fresh PEI Mussel meat to remaining ingredients and toss thoroughly.
  5. Allow to marinate in refrigerator 1/2 hour before serving.
