the mussels i have are the bluey black ones. we do get the greenlipped ones here too but i was where the bluey black ones were so i got them. white bait is super yummy. i make whitebait omlettes the same almost as i make brie omlettes but without the cheese. all i do is add the whitebait to the eggs in the cup once they are whisked. throw the whole lot in the pan and put some herb and garlic salt and some freshly ground black pepper on top while it is cooking. ditto if i make prawn omlette. i have yet to mix prawns and brie but i imagine it would be good. actual kina and brie omlette prob would be heavenly. do they have shellfish in Oz you can get in the same way as we get our kai moana here?
