Spicy Coconut Curry Mussels

Nicky Ayala


I love Mussels!!! One evening after being tired of the same ol' French steamed Mussel Recipe. I came up with an inexpensive and delicious alternative. Red Curry Paste can be used however if your pinching for pennies like I sometimes am, It's just best to have your cabinets full of spices that are ready to go when you are. I used a simple yellow curry powder for this recipe.
