Curried Mussels

Curried Mussels

This is a spicy curried dish that my English husband loves! Great as an appetizer or as a main dish. For less spicy/hot, reduce ginger and/or curry paste. Serve with your favorite crusty bread for dipping.

  1. Step 1

    Heat coconut oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Saute onion in the hot oil until softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Add ginger, green curry paste, lemon zest, and garlic. Stir in coconut milk, fish sauce, water, and lime juice. Bring to a vigorous simmer.
  2. Step 2

    Place mussels in a steamer above simmering sauce; cook until mussels open, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove mussels from heat and place into a large serving bowl.
  3. Step 3

    Place cilantro into the sauce mixture and cook just until it turns bright green, 30 to 60 seconds. Pour sauce over mussels and serve.
