Recipe – Hot Honey Mussels by Chef Mike Schroeder


10 large olives
1/2 hot pepper
 4 cloves of garlic
1/2 lemon
1 tbsp Halifax Hot Honey
 flour for batter
cooking oil ( high smoke point )

PEI Mussels are yummy, and healthy on their own. However, you can cook them in different ways and pair well with a local Wine or Cider.


  • First, you need to prepare a marinade that will distinguish the dish from the rest. 
  • Take the hot pepper pulp, squeeze the garlic through a press, squeeze the juice of fresh lemon and add Halifax Hot Honey and salt. Mussels should be infused in this marinade for about an hour.
  • Then take the mussels, dip them in flour, and skewer them to create beautiful serving mussels that are very convenient to eat.
  • Pour oil or deep-frying oil into a skillet, heat it, and gently dip the mussels into it. 
  • Fry well on both sides until golden brown.
  • Squeeze more Hot Honey to taste .. garnish with fresh herbs of your choice.
