Mussels in sea lettuce cream sauce is a seafood delicacy with a twist. Black mussels are often prepared in white wine or tomato based sauces which I certainly enjoy from time to time. However
I really love cream sauces which I prepare for us frequently. Seaweed and other sea vegetables like sea lettuce (Ulva lactuca) are really popular in Asia especially Japan. These sea vegetables are very healthy and are attributed to increasing longevity, almost cover the whole range of vitamins like "Vitamins A, E, C, K, B1, B2, B12". It further promotes bone health and is a great source of iron and protein. It is often available in health shops and asian supermarkets. Luckily for us we are living just 15 minutes away from the Cape coastline and can collect our mussels and sea lettuce fresh from the sea :-).
