I admit upfront that my Asian-Style Mussels are far from a traditional Asian recipe but it is my interpretation and, if I say so myself, it is absolutely delicious!

Clarissa is the expert in the family when it comes to Asian food but every now and then I like to give it a go.


  1. Rinse the mussels and drain well.

  2. Place a large heavy-based saucepan or stockpot over medium high heat and drizzle in the peanut oil. Add the lemongrass, chilli, shallot, garlic, ginger and coriander root and fry for 3 minutes.

  3. Add the mussels and give the mixture a good stir. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and coconut milk and stir again, then cover and bring to boil. Cook for 5 minutes, shaking the pan a few times until all the mussels are open. Discard any unopened mussels.

  4. Serve garnished with coriander leaves.
