A bivalve mollusk with a characteristic, pointed hatchet shape, thick on the anterior end and broad and very sharp on the posterior end.
This variety differs from others because of its bluish-black shell, with concentric lines, and especially because of the orangey-cream mantle which is very different to the white color found in other production areas.
Along the edge is a curvy, dark purple strip.
The mussel of Galicia is a complete food, natural and very rich in proteins, mineral salts and vitamins, but especially, low in calories.
Perfect for your seafood pasta!
