Mussel Inn owner Janne Johansson and Glasgow Head Chef Kristian Johansson journeyed to Shetland to take part in Frankies Blueshell Mussel Weekend between 3rd to 5th May with their friends at Frankie’s Fish and Chip Shop in Brae.

It was a fun celebration of fantastic Shetland mussels which were cooked to some of Janne and Kristian’s favourite Mussel Inn mussel recipes and they raised a healthy sum for the Fishermen’s Mission into the bargain.

Janne and Kristian were invited by Michael Laurenson of Blueshell Mussels Ltd, one of the mussel farms we get our mussels from, to cook mussels with our Friends at Frankie’s Fish and Chip Shop in Brae. This were all for a charity we all support, namely Fishermen’s Mission.

All the Mussels were donated by Michael and with the help of Valerie Johnson and John Gold at Frankie’s the weekend were a great success with Frankies handing over £1175 to the fishermen’s Mission.

The boys had a great time and over the weekend cooked just over 100 kg mussels for the charity. A big thank you goes to Michael, Valerie and John for their hospitality.

Mussel Inn will do a similar event in the autumn, a mussel weekend with proceeds going to the Fishermen’s Mission.
