Growing in abundance deep in the pristine waters of the spectacular Kimberley Coast, the Pinctada Maxima oyster shell is renowned for the beauty of its mother of pearl, and is used in the production of exquisite Australian South Sea Pearls. Pearl Meat, the adductor muscle of the oyster, is a seafood delicacy with a fresh taste and tender texture. It is even said to have aphrodisiac qualities! Because only small quantities of pearl meat tend to be harvested annually it is an expensive commodity, selling in Australia for at least $100 per kilogram fresh or for $400 per kilogram dried in Asia.
Our Chef’s include our pearl meat throughout our menus… why not try our pearl meat tasting plate or our delicious Pearl & seafood pasta. An unique opportunity to try this delicacy fresh from our farm.
Frozen Cygnet Bay pearl meat is available for purchase from our restaurant and Broome Boutique. $16 for 100 grams.
