peachy24's picture
Simple and yummy... You can add more red curry paste if you like, but not too much or else it will cover the taste of the dish and it will just become spicy...
  Mussels 1 Kilogram, scrubbed and debearded
  Coconut milk 400 Milliliter
  Chopped celery 200 Gram
  Red curry paste 1 Teaspoon (Add More As Per Taste)
  Sliced ginger 10 Gram
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), chopped
  Lemon grass stalks 2 , sliced
  Chopped basil 1 Tablespoon
  Lime juice 2 Teaspoon
  Fish sauce/Patis 1 Tablespoon
  Broth cube 1⁄2 (Vegetable Flavor)
  Extra virgin olive oil 3 Tablespoon

If mussels are fresh, soak them in cold water for 20min and then scrub and debeard them. Change the water and bring to a boil until shells start open. Shells still closed must not be eaten because were dead from the market. Remove the upper shell and set aside.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan or wok. Add the extra virgin olive oil and saute sliced ginger, sliced lemon grass, chopped garlic, red curry paste for 2min, add the mussels and bring to a boil for 1min, add sliced celery, coconut milk, fish sauce, broth cube, lime juice and simmer with lid until mussels are cooked.
